Tax Assessor

The Tax Assessor establishes values for all real property within the Township. It is this valuation that is the basis for the Township’s property tax levy, which is calculated by the Tax Assessor. Assessments are based on the market value of each property. Taxpayers can appeal their property’s assessment with the Hunterdon County Tax Board, on or before April 1, of each year. Outside contractors that support the Tax Assessor include an appraisal firm, a tax attorney, and a computer software company. Responsibilities of the Tax Assessor, in addition to establishing property values, include maintaining municipal tax records, including: property ownership and addresses, values, building and lot dimensions, and tax maps.

The Tax Assessor determines eligibility for all qualified farmland, tax exemptions, and deductions. Tax deductions available include: Senior Citizen, Disability, Surviving spouse, Veteran, and Widow of a Veteran. Please contact the Assessment Office to obtain applications for any of these programs.
