Hello and welcome. If you check my Professional background you will see that I have been a NJ Licensed Attorney since 1983. I am also a lifelong New Jersey resident and home owner, just like you. I experienced seven years of declines in the value of my home while during the same period my property tax assessment increased. For most of the state, the assessed value of your home is applied against an equalization ration established by the town and approved by the County annually; however if you are a Monmouth County resident, or if your town just completed there revaluation this process probaly does not appy to you.
It did not seem right to have a realtor explain that my house was worth X while the town advised me that it was worth much more. I became my first tax appeal client, and friends and neighbors soon asked for assistance. In 2012 I decided to focus on property tax appeals and appeared in over 150 County Board Appeals in Ocean, Monmouth, Bergen and Morris Counties. In 2013 and again in 2014 I continued to expanded the property tax appeals practice even further into Passaic, Sussex and Middlesex counties. I trust that my experience in the area will help you with a successful Tax Appeal Petition.
