REASSESSMENT UPDATE: 1/29/2024
All property inspections have now been completed by the appraisal company. Inspections can still be arranged for anyone not yet done on the interior. The 2024 tax book is scheduled to close on February 16, 2024, based on an extension granted by the Sussex County Board of Taxation. If more time is needed, a further extension might be requested.
Notification letters are being sent to all ratable property owners by 1/29/2024 showing the new assessment with an estimate of taxes based on the assessment change. A sample letter can be found at the link below. An estimated tax rate will be calculated for this purpose based on the known 2023 tax levy (using the total tax revenue raised from 2023 and dividing it by the new projected ratable base). Property owners will be given an opportunity to discuss the new proposed assessed value with Appraisal Systems before the Tax Book is finalized. Details will be provided in the letter on how to contact Appraisal Systems regarding assessment reviews. Any necessary follow-up inspections will be conducted during the review period thru the middle of February.
After the Tax Book is finalized, the customary Green Postcards will be mailed shortly afterward. These cards will show the new final assessment on the front and include appeal instructions on the back. Anyone seeking to file an appeal of their new assessment will have till May 1st to do so.
