City of Union City

Project Status (as of September 12, 2023)
As ordered by the Hudson County Board of Taxation and the New Jersey Division of Taxation, the City of Union City is revaluing all taxable real estate for the 2023 tax year to ensure uniform and equitable assessments. The City has entered into a contract with Appraisal Systems, Inc. to conduct the reassessment program.

The first step of the reassessment process is the inspection of all properties in the City. In the coming months inspectors from Appraisal Systems, Inc. will visit your property. The first visit from an inspector will be between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm. Appraisal Systems, Inc. representatives will carry photo identification and their names will be registered with the Police Department and the City Assessor’s Office. Please do not allow anyone to enter your home without proper identification.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, inspectors will be supplied with protective gear while performing inspections. The exterior inspection includes exterior measurements and photographs. An interior inspection needs to be made for accuracy. If that is not possible at this time please call Appraisal Systems at 201-493-8530 for other options. Please be aware if you opt out of a physical interior inspection, an interior inspection may be necessary at some point in the future.

If you are not present at the first visit, the inspector will leave an interior inspection card with further instructions. If an onsite interior inspection is conducted, owners/occupants will be requested to sign the field form verifying that the inspector completed an interior inspection. Owners of rental properties should notify all tenants of the rental units that an inspection will be forthcoming by the firm and coordinate the interior inspection option with them.

If your property has a unique condition that you believe may influence its value, please send documentation to: Appraisal Systems, Inc., 17-17 Route 208N – Suite 210, Fairlawn, NJ 07410 and it will be considered or email us at

An online webinar explaining the reassessment process will be conducted on Tuesday, June 21,2022 at 7:00 pm. All residents will have the opportunity to watch and ask questions live. Please use the link below for webinar:
