Every taxpayer has the right to file an appeal:
(1) if he is aggrieved by the assessment on his own property, or the denial of a property tax deduction or any property tax exemption, or
(2) if he believes that he is discriminated against by the assessment on any other property or properties in the same county .
An appeal may be filed with the Cumberland County Board of Taxation or the Tax Court of New Jersey.
If your assessed value exceeds $1,000,000, you have the option of filing your appeal directly with the Tax Court.
Appeals must be filed after February 1 and on or before April 1 of the current tax year.
