Background Information
Beginning in July 2016, as ordered by the Salem County Board of Taxation and as approved by the State Division of Taxation, the City must revalue all real property for the 2017 tax year to ensure uniform and equitable assessments. The City awarded the contract to Appraisal Systems, Inc. based out of Morristown, New Jersey.

The first step in the revaluation process is the inspection of all properties in the City. Representatives from Appraisal Systems will visit each property, measuring the exterior and all improvements and conducting an interior inspection. In addition, Appraisal Systems representatives will be photographing the exterior of all buildings. No interior photographs will be taken.

If no one is home at the time of the representative’s first visit, he/she will measure the exterior and leave a card specifying when he/she will return to do an interior inspection. In order to properly assess your property, it will be necessary for a representative of Appraisal Systems to examine the interior of all buildings, including basement and walk-up attic areas.

Please call Appraisal Systems at (888) 493-8530 with any inquiries with respect to the revaluation program, or click HERE for more information.
