Do you feel like you're overpaying on your property taxes? In some instances, this may be more than a feeling – it could be a reality. That's because New Jersey has the highest property taxes in the nation making it increasingly difficult for residents to afford to live in our state. All too often, property is assessed at an unfair rate, leaving a property owner overtaxed and none the wiser.
We Help You File An Appeal
Relief from these unfairly high taxes can only happen if you appeal your property tax assessment. The appeal process can be difficult to navigate because you must be able to prove and your adjusted value is not in line with property values. This requires research and expertise that the average citizen may not possess. In the end, it is oftentimes best to hire an attorney to represent you.

Appealing Residential Property Taxes

- File the application by April 1 with all the necessary parties.
- Appear at your county tax board and present your case demonstrating why your assessment should be lowered.
