Is there an official appeal process if I still disagree with my value?
If you are still dissatisfied with the result of your interview, you can file a formal appeal with the Passaic County Board of Taxation after January 1st but prior to April 1st. This step is similar to the informal interview. However, your comments will be heard by a Commissioner of the Board of Taxation. You will be given an opportunity to state the reasons you believe your assessment is inaccurate. After reviewing the facts presented, the Board will render a decision as to whether an adjustment is in order.

In the even you are not satisfied with the decision of the Board of Taxation, you have the right tot file an appeal with the Tax Court of the State of New Jersey. This must be done within 45 days of your notification. This step in the process is formal, taking place in a courtroom setting before a Tax Court Judge.
