Assessment Notices in the Mail
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) delivered this area’s Residential Property Assessment Notices on Monday, August 8, 2016 for property taxation years 2017 – 2020.
If you disagree with your assessment, MPAC will review it free of charge by way of the Request for Reconsideration.
The deadline for filing the Request for Reconsideration relative to your 2017 Property Assessment Notice is March 31, 2018; however, since this date falls on a weekend we will accept RfRs until April 2, 2018 for the 2018 property tax year.
