Jackson Township property owners have begun receiving letters from the municipal assessor’s office notifying them that all properties located within its borders will once again be re-evaluated.
This program, which has been ordered by the Ocean County Board of Taxation and approved by the State of New Jersey, Division of Taxation, will be implemented for the Tax Year 2025.
According to the assessor’s office, the goal of the revaluation program is to update all assessments to fair market value, and to achieve that goal, all pertinent information must be accurately collected.
Property owners can expect a representative from Professional Property Appraisers, Inc., which is the company that has been authorized by the Township of Jackson to inspect properties within the Town
The firm will be inspecting all property and measuring all buildings on, and improvements to, the land.
If no one is available during our initial inspection, the inspectors will continue with the exterior inspection and leave a post card with a phone number for the property owner to call to set up an appointment for an interior inspection.
Each representative will be registered with the Jackson Police Department and will be wearing a photo identification badge.
It should be noted that the people making this inspection are not responsible for developing the market value estimates. Their job is not to make an instant judgment as to valuation, but rather to collect information to be used in the valuation process.
Homeowners will be notified by mail of the assessed value established for your property and will also be given an opportunity to discuss the new value with a representative from the appraisal company.
If residents have any questions, they can call the Township of Jackson Municipal Assessor’s Office at (732) 928-1200, or the Township Police Department at (732) 928-1111.
