Revaluation

Township of Nutley

Project Status (as of February 1, 2020)
The Essex County Board of Taxation has ordered the Township of Nutley to revalue all real estate for the 2021 tax year to ensure uniform and equitable assessments. The Township has contracted Appraisal Systems, Inc. to conduct the revaluation program.

In order to meet the deadline set by the Essex County Board of Taxation to complete the revaluation program all properties in the Township will need to be inspected by a representative from Appraisal Systems. You will be notified again by postcard when an Appraisal Systems inspector will be in your specific area of the Township. The inspector will measure the exterior of any building, take several exterior pictures of the property, and conduct an interior inspection of your home.

If no one is home at the time of the representative’s first visit he/she will measure the exterior of the buildings and take exterior photographs but leave a card specifying when he/she will return to do an interior inspection. Appraisal Systems representatives will carry photo identification and their names will be registered with the Police Department and the assessor's office. You can find additional information regarding the inspectors on both Township (www.nutleynj.org) and Appraisal Systems, Inc. (www.asinj.com) websites. Please do not allow anyone to enter your home without proper identification. You will be requested to provide an electronic signature acknowledging that an interior inspection was made. Please inform the occupants of any rental units you may own concerning the inspection to be made. Owners of commercial properties will be receiving forms to complete pertaining to the income and expenses of your property which are known as Chapter 91 requests.

The new property values for 2021 will be determined based on their estimated market value as of October 1, 2020 (the statutory date required by law). Property owners will be notified by mail of their proposed new assessed values after November 10, 2020.

Introductory letters and an informational brochure were mailed to all owners of record in January 2020.

Residential inspections are beginning shortly. Please call the office if you have any questions regarding the inspection procedure.
