Tax Assessor Department Information

 
The Assessor inspects the building exterior, foundations, roof, porches, siding, and measures the dimensions of the building.  An interior inspection provides information on plumbing, heating, floors, walls, etc.  All this information is noted on the field sheet and transferred to the permanent property record card in the office.  The building is sketched, classified and priced from a cost manual.  The cost manual assures that the same unit prices will be used for all property of comparable construction.  Land values are computed separately using land value maps. 
 
If an individual believes their assessment is inequitable, they may discuss this with the Assessor.  All appeals for current year must be filed with the Monmouth County Tax Board at the Hall of Records, Freehold, NJ, on or before January 15th of the current tax year.  All appeals from added assessments for new construction, additions, or alterations for the current year must be filed with the Monmouth County Tax Board on or before Dec. 1ST of the current year.
