Assessor Department Information

Assessment Value

The main function of the Assessor’s office is to value all property in the municipality for tax purposes. The ultimate goal is to assess the properties so all property owners will pay their fair share of the revenue needed to finance the schools, municipality and county government. The State Constitution requires all properties be assessed at “fair market” value. Therefore, it is essential to maintain assessments, keep up with market prices and cope with inflation. At times, market conditions warrant Revaluation or Reassessment programs to maintain “fair market value”. 

If a homeowner feels that their property is over-assessed, they may file an appeal with the Mercer County Board of Taxation by calling (609) 989-6704. The annual deadline to file an appeal with the County Board is April 1. Note that appeals are based on the value of your property, not the taxes.

Assessments
Any questions concerning your assessment should be directed to the Tax Assessor. The Tax Collector is responsible for the billing and collection of taxes only. The Tax Assessor can be reached weekdays 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM at (609) 883-2900 x7661.

Senior Citizens, Disabled Persons: Annual deduction of up to $250 from property taxes for homeowners age 65 or older or disabled who meet certain income and residency requirements.

Veterans: Annual deduction of up to $250 from taxes due on the real or personal property of qualified war veterans and their unmarried surviving spouses/surviving civil union partners/surviving domestic partners. This benefit is administered by the local municipality.

Property Tax Exemption for Disabled Veterans: Full exemption from property taxes on a principal residence for certain totally and permanently disabled war veterans and their unmarried surviving spouses/surviving civil union partners/surviving domestic partners. Unmarried surviving spouses/surviving civil union partners/surviving domestic partners of servicepersons who died on wartime active duty may also qualify. This benefit is administered by the local municipality.
