A MESSAGE FROM THE TAX COLLECTOR & TAX ASSESSOR

Township of Plumsted Reassessment

 The Township of Plumsted is undertaking a reassessment of ALL township properties for the 2013 tax year.  The purpose of this project is to update ALL assessments to more accurately reflect current market value in order ensure that each taxpayer pays their fair share of the tax burden.

The new assessments will be reflected on the Chapter 123 postcard notification mailed to each property owner by the Tax Assessor on or before February 1, 2013.  This will be the only notification of your new assessment.  When reviewing the postcard, please note that the tax amount stated reflects the 2012 assessment and rate and will not be based on your new assessment.

2013 tax rates will be calculated based on the budgets of the various entities and cannot be determined until the budget process is complete.
