General Information & Responsibilities

 

The Assessor's Office, under the general direction of the Monmouth County Board of Taxation and the State Division of Taxation, undertakes the assessing activities of the Borough of Tinton Falls as prescribed by law.

  • Responsible for establishing an assessed value for all properties in the Borough as of Oct. 1st of the pre-tax year. The Assessor’s Office adjusts all property assessments by annually reassessing all properties in the Borough. The goal of annual reassessments is to maintain property assessments at current market value to ensure the fair distribution of the tax levy. In order to accomplish this, assessments must be annually reviewed and revised to market value based on the most recent sales data. A property owner should expect the market value (assessment) of their property to change annually.  
  • Determines the market value (assessment) of each parcel in the Borough, not the taxes. The tax rate is calculated by dividing the total tax levy by the net valuation of the Borough (total of all taxable property assessments) from the approved State budgets of the County of Monmouth, School Districts, and the municipality of Tinton Falls. Each property then pays its proportionate share of the taxes based on the tax rate multiplied by their assessment.
  • Processes building permits to determine the value for added assessments. If improvements were made to a property during the year, a property owner may receive an additional bill for this added value in October, due November 1st.
  • Reviews all applications for deductions and exemptions such as Senior Citizen, Disabled Persons, Veterans, & Surviving Spouse. These applications are available at the following link https://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/relief.shtml
  • Maintains the current tax map for the Borough. Compiles an annual list of changes to be made to the map as a result of subdivisions, exemptions, corrections, etc.
  • Responsible for approving new block and lot numbers due to subdivisions. Maintaining all new and old property addresses and approval of new street names in the Borough.
  • Defends property assessments upon appeal. All property owners are notified of their future year assessment by postcard on or before November 15th annually. If a property owner disagrees with their assessment, a tax appeal must be filed on or before January 15th with the Monmouth County Board of Taxation. Instructions can be found on the reverse side of this postcard. This is the link for filing an assessment appeal with the Monmouth County Board of Taxation https://secure.njappealonline.com/prodappeals/login.aspx
  • Reviews all property sale transfers in the Borough. This includes determining if a sale is categorized as useable or non-useable. Property ownership is updated once a deed has been recorded with the Monmouth County Clerk’s Office and received by this office.
  • Maintains all property record cards of properties in the Borough. This information includes ownership, mailing address, property location, year built, lot sizes, and characteristics of the structure.
 

The Borough of Tinton Falls 20% Inspections for 2020:

The Borough of Tinton Falls is under contract with Realty Data Systems (“RDS”) to perform inspections of all properties for the Assessor’s records. This is a critical component in the fair distribution of taxes which fund municipal, county and local school budgets. This program requires a 5-year inspection cycle and will require that all properties are inspected once during this cycle. Your property is scheduled to be inspected over the coming weeks and there will not be further notice prior to your inspection. 

 Please note that due to concerns relating to the Covid-19 virus, ONLY EXTERIOR INSPECTIONS WILL TAKE PLACE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. This process is consistent with “social distancing” recommendations and will eliminate contact with residents. Once health concerns are no longer present, a follow-up notification will be mailed advising residents of RDS returning to perform interior inspections.

 The inspection routes are predetermined, but RDS will do their best to accommodate residents.  Please be aware the inspectors will make a maximum of (3) visits. The RDS personnel will carry identification. Our office and Police Dept. possess all inspector background information, NJDL#, and automobile characteristics.  If you would like to refuse the inspection, please visit www.rdsnj.com; click APPOINTMENTS to select the refusal form. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
