Tax Assessor Information

For information about State Property Tax Relief Programs, including eligibility criterion and potential deduction or credit amounts, please visit the Division of Taxation’s website by CLICKING HERE.

The Tax Assessor is responsible for assigning the value of real property within Alexandria Township. This value is an assessment which is used as a basis for taxation. The Tax Assessor is responsible for the maintenance of ownership lists and property transfers. The Tax Assessor also represents the township in all tax appeals.

Each year by January 31st, the Hunterdon County Tax Board mails a postcard to every property owner with the current year tax assessment and the net property taxes billed for the prior year. Each homeowner should review the assessment for correctness and contact the assessor with any questions. This postcard also contains appeal instructions if a homeowner disagrees with the assessed value shown. Assessment appeals must be filed on or before April 1st of the current tax year. State law requires the Tax Assessor to assess all real property on a yearly basis by October 1st.
