Township of Rockaway

Project Status
The Bergen County Board of Taxation and the New Jersey Division of Taxation has authorized the Borough of Closter to perform a reassessment program for the 2022 tax year as part of the annual reassessment program that has been implemented within the Borough. This program will ensure uniform and equitable assessments throughout the municipality, account for the recent changes in the real estate market and significantly reduce the costly tax appeals experienced in the past. The Borough has contracted Appraisal Systems, Inc. to assist in conducting the Reassessment Program.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, contactless interior inspections using a video conference will be available at the request of the property owner.

Regardless of when a property is visited during this program, the new property values will be determined based on their estimated market value as of October 1, 2021 (the statutory date required by law). All property owners will be notified by mail of their proposed assessed values and will have an opportunity to question/contest the values.

Any inquiries with respect to the inspection and/or valuation procedure should be directed to Appraisal Systems, Inc. at (201) 493-8530.
