Background Information


Beginning in June, as directed by the Essex County Board of Taxation and as ordered by the State Division of Taxation, the Township must revalue all property, including residential and commercial, for the 2017 tax year to ensure uniform and equitable assessments.
The Township did a Request for Proposal for appraisal services and awarded the contract to Appraisal Systems, Inc. based out of Morristown, New Jersey. 

Appraisal Systems, Inc. will be sending out an introductory letter to residents in the next few weeks to explain the process of the revaluation. Inspections will occur throughout the summer and early Fall months, continuing until November 2016.

The first step in the revaluation process is the inspection of all properties in the Township. Representatives from Appraisal Systems will be visiting each property, measuring the exterior and all improvements and conducting an interior inspection. In addition, Appraisal Systems representatives will be photographing the exterior of all buildings. No interior photographs will be taken.

If no one is home at the time of the representative’s first visit, he/she will measure the exterior and leave a card specifying when he/she will return to do an interior inspection. In order to properly assess your property, it will be necessary for a representative of Appraisal Systems to examine the interior of all buildings, including basement and walk-up attic areas.

Appraisal Systems Inc. representatives will carry photo identification and a listing will be posted below and will be maintained at Town Hall. Please do not allow anyone to enter your home without proper identification. You will be requested to sign the field form/tablet used by the representative to acknowledge that an interior inspection was made. Please prepare the occupants of any rental units you may own concerning the inspection to be made. For multi-family homes, each unit will require an interior inspection.

Please call Appraisal Systems at (201) 493-8530 with any inquiries with respect to the inspection procedure. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

For more information please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) document below. 
 

Revaluation Reminders: 


It is important to let the inspector in your home to properly asses the interior, otherwise they have no choice but to estimate what is in your house. 

The first time inspectors come to your property and no one is home, they leave a card on your door. Please call the number on the card to arrange for an inspector to come back and evaluate the interior. 

The scheduling of what streets and sections of the Township inspectors are reviewing comes from Appraisal Systems Inc. This can be found on both the Township's and Appraisal Systems Inc.'s websites (see below).
