Revaluation inspections have resumed. At this time only exterior inspections will take place. For more information follow this link: http://www.asinj.com/revaluation.asp?p=current&id=431
As directed by the Morris County Board of Taxation and as ordered by the State Division of Taxation, the Borough of Netcong must revalue all taxable real estate for the 2021 tax year to ensure uniform and equitable assessments. The Borough has entered into a contract with Appraisal Systems, Inc. to conduct the revaluation program.
The first step of the revaluation process is the inspection of all properties in the Borough. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, all inspections will ONLY be of the exterior of your property. Inspectors from Appraisal Systems, Inc. will visit your property, measuring and photographing ONLY the exterior of all buildings. Once the COVID-19 outbreak subsides, in order to properly assess your property, it will be necessary for a representative of Appraisal Systems, Inc. to examine the interior. Further communication will be provided about those future interior inspections once the outbreak subsides.
All representatives will be provided with photo identification authorized by the Borough. Do not allow anyone to enter your home without proper identification. If you have any concern with an individual trying to gain entry, please do not hesitate to contact the Netcong Police Department at 973-347-7700.
Owners of rental properties should notify all tenants of the rental units that an interior inspection will be forthcoming by the firm. Owners/occupants will be requested to sign the field form verifying that the inspector made an interior inspection.
If your property has a unique condition that you believe may influence its value, please send documentation to: Appraisal Systems, Inc., 17-17 Route 208N Fairlawn, NJ 07410 and it will be considered.
After the appraisals have been completed, you will be notified of the proposed assessment as well as procedures to review the assessment with a representative of the firm.
