ABOUT THE ROBBINSVILLE TOWNSHIP TAX ASSESSOR
The Robbinsville Township Tax Assessor has the statutory responsibility of maintaining property record data for all of the Township’s parcels. The Assessor must maintain up-to-date maps and all property record information such as names, addresses, and deed information. The Assessor is also responsible for maintaining the property record card, which contains the assessment calculation and description. The office also reviews and maintains all property deductions (seniors, veterans, disabled), farmland applications, income and expenses statements, abatements, and exemptions.
ABOUT YOUR PROPERTY TAXES AND ASSESSMENTS
Property Taxes are the result of a calculation when your assessment is multiplied by the tax rate. The Assessor has no control over your property taxes in so far as the assessed value usually remains the same, but the tax rate changes year to year. The tax rate is established by the taxing authorities (County, Schools, Municipality) based on their annual Budgets. Concerns about the amount of the Budget and tax rate need to be addressed to these authorities. Property assessments were established by the last Revaluation in 2007. Since all appraisals/assessments are an opinion of value, the State allows for assessments to be within +/- 15% of market value to be deemed to be correct.
Appeals to Mercer County can be made from February 1 to April 1 each year. Evidence must be shown that the property is overvalued. Further Instructions can be found on the Mercer County Board of Taxation website.
