Tax Assessment Administration
The Assessor is responsible to the citizens of the municipality for the fair assessment of all property in order that the tax burden may be distributed equitably.
Every year on or before February 1st, the assessor is required under N.J.S.A. 54.4-3.2, to notify every property owner of their assessment. A property owner who disagrees with the assessed value may appeal to the Camden County Board of Taxation on or before April 1st.
