Tax Appeals & Added Assessments

All appeals must be filed with the Bergen County Board of Taxation by April 1st of each year, except those properties with an assessed value in excess of $750,000 which may be filed directly to the Tax Court in Trenton. Petitions of appeal with instructions may be obtained at the county office located at 25 East Salem Street in Hackensack or by calling 646-3185 after receipt of your postcard notification in February.

Added Assessment and Omitted Added Assessments

It is only logical that an improvement to your home will result in an increased selling price of your home and therefore, your property tax assessment will increase. This will take the form of an added assessment tax bill which you will receive in the mail at the end of October after the improvement is substantially completed for its intended use. This bill shall be payable on November 1, February 1 and May 1 and then the added assessment amount will be included in your annual tax bill received in June for the new tax year. Therefore, just as you planned ahead for this improvement, you should also plan ahead and set aside funds for the added assessment tax bill.

If you did not receive an Added Assessment Tax bill for work completed in the previous year, you will receive an “Omitted Added” Assessment bill in addition to an “Added Assessment” bill the year following the improvement.

Please note, not scheduling a final inspection for your building permit does not delay the added assessment tax bill.
