Tax Assessment

Taxpayer Bill of Rights.pdf

The Tax Assessor is responsible for the equitable distribution of property taxes through the fair valuation of all real property at market value.
Detailed property records are available for view in the Assessor’s office during listed business hours.
The tax rate is per $100. Multiply the assessment by the tax rate to arrive at the amount of annual property tax.
Yearly Assessment Notices are mailed via regular mail by the 1st of February of the current year and will list the prior year taxes. Information about the Appeal Process will appear on the back of the notice.
Tax appeals must be paid, processed and received by April 1st by the Cape May County Tax Board.  All municipal charges must be current to have a hearing.
