BILL TO ALLOW COUNTYWIDE ASSESSMENT ADVANCES

vandrew_colorA key Senate committee advanced a measure that would allow for countywide assessments to take place. A pilot program has been run in Gloucester County. The bill sponsored by Senator Jeff Van Drew would modernize property-tax assessment in participating counties by moving the responsibility of assessment from the municipal level to the county. In counties that elect the new system, the freeholder board would appoint a county assessor. The Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee approved the bill by a vote of 5-0.
