The Assessor is responsible to the citizens of Neptune for the fair assessment of all property in order that the tax burden be distributed equitably. This office strives to keep the public well informed on all tax assessment matters.

Responsibilities of the Assessor:

The assessor’s duties may be divided into these major functions:
1.    Discovery and location of all real property and certain personal property used in business in the taxing district;
2.    Listing and description of property in a systematic, convenient manner through MOD IV;
3.    Determination of taxability based on a wide variety of tax exemption and tax deduction statutes;
4.    Valuation of property through an appraisal of each property and an assessment based on that appraised value;
5.    Tax equalization responsibilities via district revaluation programs and for purposes of distributing State Aid to schools;
Defense of assessments upon appeal

Assessment Review (New Service):

The purpose of TIARA (Taxpayer Informal Assessment Review Application) is to provide the taxpayer with a free and informal means of submitting questions and supporting documents (pictures, maps, narratives) regarding their future property assessment. Submissions will be reviewed annually by the Assessor prior to the delivery of the next Preliminary Tax List November 1st. 

If the information submitted by the taxpayer warrants a change in the future assessment the Assessor may change the assessment for the following year, thereby avoiding the need for a formal appeal process. If upon receipt of their new assessment in November the taxpayer thinks their assessment does not reflect the current value of their real property, they may file a formal appeal. 

TIARA will be opened each May, after the current year’s appeals and closed for submission early October, before the Assessor’s submission of the Preliminary Tax List.
