In 2015, nearly 100,000 homeowners appealed their property taxes in New Jersey – and nearly two-thirds succeeded in having their assessments reduced by $25,000.00 to $75,000.00 – thereby lowering their taxes in many cases by $10,000.00 over 12 years.
In a seminar hosted by Peter Jordan of Berkshire Hathaway Homes Services NJ Properties, homeowners will learn how to determine if their property value is over-assessed and what they need to do in order to successfully challenge their assessment in their township.
In addition, homeowners will learn:
• How individual property assessments and taxes are calculated
• Rules for determining if you have a winnable case
• How to choose the best comparable sales to defend your value
• Common pitfalls and problems that can lead to a permanent dismissal of your case – and how to avoid them!
Maria Cozzini, a New Jersey tax attorney, will be the guest speaker and each homeowner who attends will receive a free assessment of their current eligibility for a tax appeal.
The seminar is scheduled for Thursday, March 10th, 6:30-8:00 PM in the Clark Library (Ayers Room), at 303 Westfield Avenue in Clark.
