The main function of the Assessor's office is to value all property in the municipality for tax purposes. The ultimate goal is to assess the properties so all property owners will pay their fair share of the revenue needed to finance the schools, municipality, and county government.

Revaluation Assessment Appeals
The deadline to appeal a revaluation assessment with Hunterdon County is July 1.
If you have questions regarding a revaluation assessment appeal, please contact Assessor Erica Brandmaier at (908) 638-8523 x105.
Additional information regarding filing an appeal can be found on the Hunterdon County Board of Taxation website.
The State Constitution requires all properties to be assessed at "fair market" value. Therefore, it is essential to maintain assessments, keep up with market prices and cope with inflation. At times, market conditions warrant Revaluation or Reassessment programs to maintain "fair market value."
If a homeowner feels their property is over-assessed, they may file an appeal with the Hunterdon County Board of Taxation by calling (908) 788-1173. The annual deadline to file an appeal with the County Board is April 1. Note that appeals are based on the value of your property, not the taxes.
