Annual Reassessment Program:  

As you may be aware, the Township of Bridgewater continues to conduct its annual reassessment program.  As we enter our twelfth year, I remind property owners that the purpose of the reassessment program is not to generate additional tax revenue.  Its purpose is to annually reestablish the overall municipal assessment value based upon market analysis. This includes all class of properties; commercial, residential, industrial, vacant land, etc.

As a state requirement of the reassessment program, each property must be inspected within a four year cycle.  Each year of our annual reassessment program the Township of Bridgewater contracts with an accredited appraisal firm to conduct property inspections in order to confirm data accuracy.  Having correct data is paramount to valuation accuracy.  This is also vital to maintain equity and uniformity.  Our goal is to have all assessments reflect as close to true market as possible.  For 2016, the Township of Bridgewater has entered into a contract with Appraisal Systems Inc.  Properties within Block 102 to Block 182 are scheduled to be inspected.  A notice will be mailed out prior to the inspection.

At any time during the year we welcome you to contact the Assessor’s office to obtain information with regard to your assessment and the reassessment function.  If you have questions, please contact the office at 908-725-6300 Ext. 5121, and 5125.
