Assessor's Office

Welcome from the Chatham Borough Assessor's Office:
The assessor is responsible for the fair assessment of all real property within the municipality in order that the tax burden may be distributed equally.

An annual Tax List is prepared by the assessor and filed with the Morris County Board of Taxation. To produce this list the assessor must identify and value each property as well as maintain an accurate record of property ownership.

The assessor also administers numerous programs required by New Jersey State Statute including tax exemptions to qualified parties, sales ratio study for county equalized tax purposes, farmland assessment and annual assessment notification.

Please do not hesitate to call the office if you have any questions or concerns regarding your assessed value or any of the programs we administer.

2014 Property Taxes:  1st Quarter taxes will be due February 1 st , 2014 or by February 10th, 2014 (10 day grace period)

 

Per N.J. Division of Taxation, most eligible homeowners will receive their 2011 homestead benefit as a credit applied to property tax bills in August 2013.

* Remember that tax bills are only mailed out once per year. You have to mark your calendar to remember the due dates:

  • August 1st
  • November 1st
  • February 1st
  • May 1st

If you finish paying off your mortgage mid year you must notify our department so that all future correspondence will go to you instead of the mortgage company.

You are then to use the “this is not a bill for advice only” copy of your tax bill to make your payments with. It is entirely up to you to find out when the next quarter is due since bills only go out once per year and we have no way of knowing unless notified by you or your mortgage company that your mortgage company will no longer be paying your taxes.

  • Veterans or Widow of Veterans Deduction $250.00 per year if you meet qualifications
  • Senior Citizen Deduction $250.00 per year if you meet qualifications
