Despite its description, a tax appeal is not an appeal of property taxes. A tax appeal is an appeal of the property tax assessment determined by the tax assessor. Appeals must be filed with the Morris County Board of Taxation on or before April 1st of the tax year in question. It is recommended that before you file an appeal, you speak to the tax assessor to discuss your assessed value. The New Jersey Division of Taxation has provided an informational brochure regarding tax appeals entitled A Guide To Tax Appeal Hearings (PDF).
For tax appeal forms, please contact the Morris County Board of Taxation at 973-285-6707.
