LATEST NEWS AND INFORMATION BROUGHT TO YOU BY LAFAYETTE TITLE

 

The New Jersey Division of Taxation has issued letters to the municipal governments of Jersey City, Dunellen and Elizabeth informing them that it will conduct an investigation to determine whether to order a revaluation of the properties within their boundaries.

Based on preliminary data, the Division has determined that those municipalities within their respective counties appear to be the most dramatically out of compliance with Constitutional and statutory provisions requiring fair and uniform property tax assessments.

These three investigations are the beginning of a larger effort to address issues of noncompliance by municipalities in these three counties in the absence of action by the county tax boards. Other municipalities to follow include the Town of Westfield in Union County, the Borough of South River in Middlesex County, the Borough of East Newark in Hudson County, Harrison City in Hudson County, the Borough of Roselle in Union County, and Winfield Township in Union County.
