Mission Statement:

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.

Program Description:

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.

Property Assessment Notices (Post Cards) Mailed on January 30th

The annual mailing of Property Assessment Notices was completed on January 30th. The information contained in the notice is set by New Jersey Law. A sample notice can be viewed by clicking here.

The sole purpose of the mailing is to notify property owners of their assessment for the year and information on the appeal process. They are not statements of taxes paid in the prior year and should not be used for income tax purposes. Please refer to your cancelled checks or year end mortgage statements/1099 forms mailed by your lending institution for exact taxes paid. Property taxes can also be viewed on line by clicking here.

Any question regarding taxes paid should be directed to the Collector's Office.
