Tax Assessor

The Assessor is responsible for identifying all property in the Township, and assigning an assessed or taxable value. The Assessor’s Office also processes all ownership changes, deed transactions, and deductions/exemptions (e.g., senior citizens, disabled persons and veterans).

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, county government and fire district.

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”.

Estimated Tax Bills Have Been Sent To Residents

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Burlington County Board of Taxation has been unable to certify a new tax rate by the statutory mailing date.  As required by law, Town Council passed Resolution #2020-R-84 directing the Tax Collector to prepare, complete and mail estimated and reconciled tax bills in accordance with N.J.S.A. 54:4-66.3. 

Your 3rd Quarter tax bill is an estimated bill based on the adopted budgets of the county, municipality and school district. A reconciled bill will then be mailed on September 30th, 2020; the 4th quarter tax bill will include final tax rates certified by the County Tax Board and will result in the correct payment by deducting the payments made in previous installments.
