New Jersey Real Estate Attorney
property tax appeals
New Jersey has one of the highest property tax burdens in the nation.
The taxes a property owner pays are based on the assessed value of their property. When the equalized value is higher than the fair market value of the property, the owner is paying too much in taxes.
A successful property tax appeal can mean substantial savings for a homeowner or commercial property owner.
What is the deadline to file a New Jersey property tax appeal? The deadline to file a property tax appeal in New Jersey is generally April 1. However, this deadline can vary if you live in a town doing a revaluation, or if you live in certain counties. If you miss the deadline, you lose your right to an appeal. Therefore, consultation with an attorney is of paramount importance.
How can we help? We offer a complimentary review of your case to determine if you are eligible for an appeal. If you have a good case for an appeal we will work with you and an appraiser to establish proof that your property is overvalued. We will then file an appeal on your behalf, represent you at the County Tax Board or Tax Court as appropriate, negotiate with the taxing authorities, and present your case.
What is our legal fee? Generally we handle these particular cases on a contingency basis, which means you don't pay a legal fee unless we save you money. However, if you prefer an hourly engagement, we will work with you to find the best arrangement.
