not clear if your question is about the reassessment which will be coming sooner than later in Ewing or how to appeal current assessment. If you are wondering when Ewing will be reassessing next, speak with Jeff Burd at Ewing twp. (he is assessor there) As to appealing assessments there is a standard process where basically you appeal at the local level then work your way up to state level if unsatisfied with offer/verdict. It isnt a difficult process but can be time consuming. You may want appraisal done and pay appraiser to defend it in court. (typically at the higher level of appeals) Best to start with informal dialogue with twp assessor. (after speaking with local realtor to get a feel for your true market value) When as in the case of Ewing, assessments are old the twp is given considerable leeway in the variance allowed. (assessment is around half of market value and this value will have an allowable deviation from actual market value)

The tax appeal and reassessment process in NJ falls under state law.

Here is a link to some information on tax appeals in New Jersey

In any township in Mercer county it is the same. Go to the tax assessor page on the NJ state website. Full instructions are there.
