In March 2013, Governor Chris Christie signed into law Chapter 15 P.L 2013 known as The Assessment Demonstration Program to begin in tax year 2014. The Monmouth County Board of Taxation and the Monmouth County Assessors have decided to be the first in the State to take on this project. Although there will be many changes over the next 5 years, the major changes for 2014 will be that the Assessment postcards that are normally received in February, will be mailed on or about November 15, 2013 giving the 2014 assessment. The Appeal deadline for all appeals of the assessment to the Monmouth County Board of Taxation is now January 15th for each year. For more information, please contact the Freehold Township Tax Assessor at 732-294-2040.
