Tax Appeal Application


In New Jersey, the specific remedy for property tax complaints is by appeal of the property's assessment to the County Tax Board and the various courts. Appeals must be filed on or before April 1 of the tax year or within 45 days of issuance of a Notice of Change in Assessment with the County Board of Taxation.  

Forms can also be obtained from the county tax board if the property's assessed valuation is greater than $1,000,000 the taxpayer or taxing district may file a petition of appeal called Form of Complaint with the Tax Court by April 1 of the tax year. If you are dissatisfied with the judgment of the County Board of Taxation you may file an Appeal with the Tax Court within 45 days of date of final judgment. Appeals from the Tax Court judgments may be carried to Superior Court, Appellate Division within 45 days.
