As you may be aware, New Jersey has adopted a law establishing the office of County Assessor. Gloucester County was chosen for a pilot program to implement the new regulations. The responsibilities previously performed by our municipal assessor, Brian Rosenberger, will be assumed by the Gloucester County Assessor’s office.
The primary function of the Tax Assessor is to assess properties for taxing purposes. The assessor is the person to notify if you have a question about your assessment (not the taxes you pay, but the value assigned to the property that is taxed). If you make a taxable improvement to your property, the assessor will be out to appraise it for taxing purposes after a certificate of occupancy is issued. Contact the assessor about any changes or corrections to information on your tax bill. If you build a new house, the tax assessor will assign the address for 911 emergency purposes. The assessor will answer your questions regarding applications for deductions or exemptions from taxes, such as veteran’s deductions, senior citizen deductions, or farmland assessment applications. The assessor can provide you with copies of tax maps, and general information about taxation in the township.
