Legislation Temporarily Extending Deadlines for Property Tax Appeals and Decisions

By Rebecca J. Rosen, Esq.

On May 28, 2020, Governor Murphy signed into law A4157, which temporarily extends the deadline to file a property tax appeal to July 1, 2020, and the deadline for county boards of taxation to render decisions in tax appeal cases to September 30, 2020. Effective immediately, the bill applies retroactively to April 1, 2020 and expires on December 31, 2020.

The bill does not apply to appeals filed with a county board of taxation with respect to parcels of real property located in a county participating in the demonstration program established in section 4 of P.L.2013, c.15, in a county operating under the “Property Tax Assessment Reform Act”, or in a county that has adopted the provisions of section 1 of P.L.2018.
