In order to remove any ambiguity occasioned by prior New Jersey Supreme Court Orders, extending the April 1 and May 1 annual tax appeal filing deadlines for regular and revaluation or reassessment district appeals to “30 days after the Governor lifts the State of Emergency” occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic, respectively, Govenor Murphy has signed into law legislation fixing July 1, 2020 as the appeal deadline for this tax year.  Although this July 1 deadline does not apply to certain limited municipalities located mainly in Monmouth and Gloucester counties, this new deadline will apply for the vast majority of property owners throughout the state.

The passing of this law was intended to provide both property owners and municipalities with the necessary certainty of schedule that will allow all parties, the fair opportunity to decide, on an informed basis, whether to take action. The relevant valuation date for the 2020 tax year is October 1 of 2019 and consideration of property values at that time as compared with the values indicated by their respective 2020 assessments should be reviewed without delay with appropriate real estate valuation experts and counsel experienced in this area of practice.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
