LONG BRANCH: City residents likely received or will be receiving a letter noticing them about an upcoming city-wide revaluation.
The city was ordered by the Monmouth County Board of Taxation to conduct a complete revaluation of all city properties effective for the tax year of 2016. It has been ten years since the last city-wide revaluation.
The city hired an appraisal firm, Realty Appraisal Company, earlier this year to perform the revaluation.
In the next few weeks, an representative from Realty Appraisal Company will be doing a complete inspection of the interior and exterior of each building in the city limits.
The representatives will have a letter of identification with the signature of Long Branch Tax Assessor John Butow as well as photo ID. The city is asking residents to not allow anyone into their homes that does not have these forms of identification.
Once the revaluation is complete, homeowners will be notified of their new assessment and can have a representative go over it in more detail with them.
