Revaluation is Coming.

Jersey City is a very diverse city consisting of many neighborhoods, markets and Sub markets. A revaluationis a very large undertaking for any company. Understanding the markets and sub markets, can be an enourmas task. The revaluation is currently on schedule, this has been confirmed by the Assessors office and the Hudson County Board of Taxation.


Inspections began in late March of 2017 and are still on going and not yet complete. New assessment numbers, have not yet been scheduled for release.  The deadline for filing appeals is normally April 1 but because this is a revaluation year it will be May 1. 


Additional revaluations are scheduled forother Hudson County Communities, This year Weehawken is scheduled to be complete. In the following years Bayonne, East Newark and Harrison will be completed.


Pay close attention to your new assessment when it is received by you as it will directly effect the amount of property taxes that you will pay. Don't be afraid to question your assessment, check the size of your dwelling, including the # of units, the condition of the property, the location of your property and how the value of your property was determined by the revaluation company.


You may or may not be satisified with the valuation of your property. There are several steps that you can take in order to contest the new valuation of your property.


1. Meet with the revaluation company for your informal discussion on how they arrived at their valuaition.

2.Be prepared and bring them any evidence that you can provide to contest that valuation.

3. Formally appeal the new assessment prior to May 1 at The Hudson County Board of Taxation.

4. When in doubt, hire your own expert to see if an appeal is warrented.


Every property owner should be pro active and take these steps as the revaluation assements become public. The worst thing you can do is nothing, because you will be stuck with that assessment for at least 1 year.


We are experts in Hudson County and Jersey City Real Estate Markets and are available to discuss your property assessment at any time during this process.
