Assessment Value –

The main function of the Assessor’s office is to value all property in the municipality for tax purposes. The ultimate goal is to assess the properties so all property owners will pay their fair share of the revenue needed to finance the schools, municipality and county government. The Assessor’s responsibilities are governed by state law and monitored by the State Division of Taxation, the County Tax Board and the County Tax Administrator.

The State Constitution requires all properties be assessed at "fair market" value. Therefore, it is essential to maintain assessments, keep up with market prices and cope with inflation. At times, market conditions warrant Revaluation or Reassessment programs to maintain "fair market value".
