To provide a fair and equitable base for distributing property taxes, to educate the public in the process and provide access to a wealth of information pertaining to real property and sales of real property.
Annually the Division of Assessments is responsible for accurately identifying, listing, and valuing all real property in the Village as well as defending the values. This requires the collection, interpretation and maintenance of data from numerous sources. Through the use of technology we are able to provide other departments and the public access to our database. The Division also administers numerous programs provided by New Jersey State Statutes including senior citizen, disabled persons and veterans tax deductions, farmland assessments, tax exemptions to eligible non-profit organizations, sales ratio, and annual assessment notifications.
Please call first to make sure someone is in the office. Our responsibilities often call for us to be out of the building. Every effort is made to keep the office opened and staffed.
