Tax Appeal Filing Deadline Extension Due to COVID Emergency
March 20, 2020
Due to the federal, state and public health emergencies arising from the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the Supreme Court of New Jersey issued an order on March 19, 2020 (see link below) EXTENDING the filing deadline for tax assessment appeals to the later of May 1st, 2020 OR thirty (30) days following a determination by the Governor of New Jersey that the state of emergency declared under Executed Order 103 has ended.
This filing deadline extension applies to the Tax Court of New Jersey and to all county boards of taxation EXCEPT Monmouth and Gloucester County. Monmouth and Gloucester County’s appeal filing deadline (January 15, 2020) has already passed and the filing deadline extension in the Supreme Court’s order does not apply to those two county boards of taxation. HOWEVER, the assessments of all properties in every county in the state (inclusive of Monmouth and Gloucester) may still be appealed to the state Tax Court of New Jersey (as per the extension provided in the Supreme Court’s order) IF their 2020 assessment is in excess of one million ($1,000,000) dollars. If you feel your residential, retail, commercial or industrial property is over-assessed, please contact Justin McCarthy for a no cost initial review and discussion.
