Deadlines for Appealing NJ Property Tax Assessments Are Fast Approaching

If you or your organization owns or leases real property in New Jersey, you might be overassessed, especially in light of the sweeping economic downturn that has affected real property values since 2008. A real property tax appeal can result in a favorable settlement for the taxpayer and reduce current and future taxes owed. The April 1, 2012, deadline to file an appeal is quickly approaching; if your municipality implemented a revaluation of assessments, that deadline is extended to May 1, 2012. We would be happy to analyze your assessment and recommend the best course of action that may benefit your bottom line. Property tax assessment cards are generally mailed to each property owner of record by the end of February.
