Assessment Calendar Change


Burlington County Property Owners 

In 2018 the Alternative Real Property Assessment Calendar (P.L. 2018, c. 94) was signed into law for New Jersey by Governor Murphy.  After careful consideration the Alternative Real Property Assessment Calendar was adopted by the Board of Chosen Freeholders of the County of Burlington via Resolution # 2020- 00149 on April 9, 2020 to begin implementation as of October 1, 2020.

The assessment calendar change will benefit property owners and municipalities by completing the appeal process before tax bills are generated in 2021 and each year subsequently. View 5 yr impact (PDF)
