Is there an appeal process if I disagree with my assessed value?
If you are dissatisfied with your assessment, you can file a formal appeal in 2017 with the Essex County Board of Taxation, which must be received prior to May 1, 2017. Your appeal will be heard by a Commissioner of the Board of Taxation; and, you will be given an opportunity to state the reasons you believe your assessment is inaccurate. After reviewing the facts presented, the Board will render a decision as to whether an adjustment is in order.

If you are not satisfied with the decision of the Board of Taxation, you have the right to file an appeal with the Tax Court of the State of New Jersey. This must be done within 45 days of your notification. This step in the process is formal, taking place in a courtroom setting before a Tax Court Judge.
