8/7/2015 - City-Wide Reassessment (Updated 2/16/16)

Dear Property Owner:

The reassessment of Hackensack has been completed in accordance with the rules and regulations mandated by the State of New Jersey requiring all real property be appraised at its fair market value. We have made a complete analysis of all recent market data in order to accomplish this task and to determine the value of all properties as of October 1, 2015.

Please do not apply the 2015 tax rate to your new value. The aggregate value of total assessments in Hackensack will increase in the reassessment year of 2016; therefore, the tax rate will decrease. Property taxes cannot be computed until the County, School and Municipal budgets are approved and the new 2016 tax rate is established in the summer of 2016.

Additional information such as the predicted tax rate, estimated tax impact calculator, 2014 and 2015 sales information, all assessments, and neighborhood map can be found at www.asinj.com by clicking on “Current revaluation information” on the homepage and following the Hackensack link.

If you wish to request a copy of your property record card for your review, please email hackensack@asinj.com with the subject line “PRC request”. Please allow up to 72 hours to receive your property record card.

If you desire, you may meet with an Appraisal Systems representative to discuss or present any relevant information regarding your new 2016 assessed value. Meetings can be scheduled by calling (201) 493-8530 Monday-Friday between the hours of 9:30 A.M and 4:00 P.M., within 7 business days of the receipt of this letter.
