Burlington County property owners can file their tax appeals online.
The online filing deadline is 11:59pm on April 1st.
There are two exceptions to the above deadline, if your property is located in Edgewater Park, the deadline is 11:59pm on April 15th or if located in Riverside the deadline is 11:59pm May 1st.
*The online appeal site is only compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari web browsers.
Advantages & Benefits
With online filing homeowners have the advantage of electronically transferring their completed applications to the required departments--tax assessor's office, municipal clerk, and county tax board. This process is immediate after completing all necessary fields.
Homeowners will benefit by receiving notifications through email and now also have the option to include a mobile phone number for text alerts.
Another benefit to online filing is being able to add supportive evidence to the appeal file up to 7 days before the hearing date.
Of course, property owners can still use the paper form to file tax appeals by downloading the form here
or picking it up from the County Tax Board office or their local municipal offices. Paper appeals must either be mailed into the Tax Board office or hand delivered and arrive before the deadline of April 1st at 5pm. The application must be complete and include the proper filing fee. With the exception of property located in Edgewater Park, the deadline is April 15th at 5pm or Riverside, their deadline is May 1st at 5pm. Appeals will not be accepted via fax or email.
Serving a Paper Appeal
When utilizing the paper form, you must serve 1 copy of your tax appeal, with the filing fee, to the Board of Taxation by the filing deadlines.
*You are also required to serve 1 copy of your tax appeal to the Municipal Clerk and one to the Municipal Assessor, whose offices are located at the municipality. If you file an appeal through the Online Appeal System it automatically gets served to all parties.
Note to Petitioners
Important note to all tax appeal petitioners, whether using electronic or paper filing: It is imperative that petitioners read and understand all instructions in order to complete the application correctly. Failure to do so may present problems later, possibly causing the appeal to be dismissed.
