If you think the revaluation of your home is too high:
- Call or visit us. The Tax Assessor is normally available Thursday and Friday but is available extra hours for the next few weeks. The CFO is available every day. And the administrators can also help. It is best if you call 973-593-3042, extension 3067 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
- Review your property record card. This card helps the Assessor value your property and includes information like size of lot, total square footage of your home, number of bathrooms, number of rooms, number of fireplaces, etc. It is important to check to make sure that the information on this card is correct.
- Annually you have the legal right to challenge your assessment; however there is only a fixed amount of time during which you can file a challenge. That period for 2013 has passed, and the next opportunity will be in January of 2014 with a deadline of April 1, 2014.
