Assessment and Tax Rate
By state law, all municipalities within a county must assess property at the same percentage of true market value — defined as the price a willing buyer would pay a willing seller on the previous October first the date the assessment books close. All property in the Township was reevaluated in 1992.
Assessments in the Township are made by the assessor as of October first of each year. If an individual questions the fairness of a property assessment, the matter may be discussed with the Assessor. Appeals are heard by the Mercer County Board of Taxation; appeals from its decision may be taken to the State Tax Court. Note that appeals are based on the value of your property, not the taxes.
The tax rate is determined by dividing the total amount of money to be raised by property taxation by the total assessed value of all taxable property. A portion of the taxes collected by the Township is for local schools and county government.
