What are the reasons for an appeal?
You have a reasonable appeal if you can support any of the following claims:
- The assessment of the subject property is based on a factual error (e.g. incorrect square footage)*.
- The assessment is greater than 1/3 of the subject property's recent sale price
- The assessment is greater than 1/3rd of the subject property's market value.
- The assessment of the subject property is higher than that of comparable properties.
- Matters of law.
*In this event, a Certificate of Error may be issued by the Township Assessor's Office with the concurrence of the Board of Review, even after the tax bill is received.
