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.
