The dead line to file a tax return is April 1st. You can hire an appraiser for under $500 to come in and appraise your home for tax appeal purposes and they will help you with your paperwork to file for the appeal. If you know a Real Estate Agent, they can give you a market analysis of homes that have sold between January and October of 2012 and give you an idea of what your home is worth. But then you will have to fill out the paperwork on your own and come up with the values. The fastest and easiest way is to hire an appraiser because then all you have to do is attach the appraisal to the appeal papers.

the information only have a short time to get an application filed. Go to the link below for a general overview of the tax appeal process. Although it mentions Little Egg Harbor, the process is the same in every municipality. Then you contact contact me for the comparable sales information you'll need.

You could appeal the property tax each year before april first. You go to Atlantic couty offce in Mays Landing. and go to Tax office then pick up the Tax appeal Pkg and the clark will tell what to do. You can appeal the property tax yourself, appraiser, or Attorney.

Ok, here's the detailed answers you were looking for. This year the City Council of EHT decided that they would restructure the way the assess and tax property. In the past the rates was over 4% with you then being taxed at 57% of the inflated value. Now they think they should tax you at about 2.32% at 100% of the value. It's been a sneaky way for the township to raise taxes while claiming they're lowering taxes. They have held several large scale dispute sessions, one at the community center and I believe also at the library. I don't know the cut off for disputing the value but you must go in armed with sales facts. You need prior sales #'s in hand if you stand a chance. If you email me with your address I can send you back prior sales for the previous year. Go on to my site at http://www.SouthJerseyHomes.com and use the contact button. In some cases I have already listed the prior year's sales but I'm always happy to run specific sheets from the mls.
