The window for filing for a New Jersey property tax appeal is a short one – the process is only available between February 1st and April 1st.

If you live in Gloucester Township, Washington Township, or anywhere else in the South Jersey area, then it is very likely that you are paying inordinately high property taxes. Homeowners in New Jersey pay the highest property taxes of any state in the country, and in some counties the taxation runs more than two times the national average. With Gloucester County’s tax rates running at a representative 2.672% and the numbers expected to continue rising incrementally, it is increasingly important that your home’s value is assessed with some degree of accuracy – otherwise, you end up paying even more than you should.

Though there’s little that you can do about reducing your tax rate, you can take action and petition for a reappraisal when you think the assessed value is too high – and David Reinherz of Reinherz Law is uniquely qualified to help you with the process. He is not only an esteemed attorney; he is also a New Jersey property owner who holds a realtor license. He is able to offer valuations of the home as part of his service, as well as the benefit of his own experience in having filed multiple successful property tax appeals on his own behalf, as well as for his clients. If you are interested in pursuing a property tax appeal and want to give yourself the benefit of knowledge and experience, contact the office today.

The goal of filing an appeal is a simple one – to have a home that has been over-assessed reappraised so that you can reduce your tax burden. Though you can file a property tax appeal on your own, the application process can be complex and is deadline sensitive, with different counties having different filing requirements. Having a knowledgeable attorney with extensive experience in the appeals process can make a world of difference in whether you are successful in your attempt to get your home assessment reduced, and lower the amount of tax that you owe.

When David Reinherz representing your property tax appeal, you gain the confidence of working with somebody who knows all of the ins and outs of the filing process. He will assist you in gathering comparable sales in your neighborhood to use in support of your appeal, ensuring that the properties that you include in your petition fall within the appropriate framework and are acceptable to the assessor’s office. He will also prepare a personalized letter that explains and justifies the appeal, and represent you at the scheduled hearing, ensuring that all appropriate evidence is filed within the appropriate time frame.

In many cases, where the filing process is done correctly and the information provided is comprehensive, the tax assessor will offer a settlement before you ever need a hearing, and the likelihood of this happening is greatly enhanced by having an experienced attorney acting as your advocate.
