Where can I get a copy of my deed?

How can I challenge my taxes?
You cannot challenge your taxes. Property taxes are the result of the local budget process and cannot be appealed. The Assessor's Office has no control over the tax rate. The property taxes are the result of the budgets submitted by the schools, municipality and County.

Can I challenge my assessment?
Yes. On or about November 1, the Assessor is required to notify every property owner of their assessment. A property owner who disagrees with the assessed value may appeal to the Monmouth County Board of Taxation in Freehold or before January 15. Appeal forms and all instructions can be found here.  

What property tax deductions are available?
Senior Citizens, Surviving Spouses or Permanently and Totally Disabled Persons are entitled to a $250 tax deduction with an income limitation of $10,000 of combined income (husband and wife) not including Social Security. Veterans and Surviving Spouses of Veterans can receive a $250 deduction as long as the Veteran in question served during wartime or at least fourteen days of active service in a combat zone on a peacekeeping mission. Disabled Veterans or the Surviving Spouses of Disabled Veterans that are service-connected disabled may be eligible for a tax exemption. The only other Senior tax relief programs are the Homestead Rebate (800-323-4400) and the Property Tax Reimbursement Program (800-882-6597). Both are administered directly through the Division of Taxation and information regarding same is available at the numbers listed. Please contact our office for further qualifications and applications.

Can I obtain a copy of my survey from the Assessor's office?
No. The only record the Assessor is required to keep is the township's tax map. The tax map is utilized by the assessor for identification of property locations only. Lot size, dimensions and acreage figures are for tax purposes only. A property owner should refer to the legal description indicated on their recorded deed or refer to their survey from a licensed surveyor.
