On May 28, 2020, Governor Murphy signed legislation to fix the deadline to file property tax appeals for the 2020 year to July 1. The regular tax appeal deadline was April 1 (or May 1 for municipalities undergoing a reassessment or revaluation.) The Supreme Court previously extended the deadline due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, but the final deadline was not fixed by the Court. The new law now establishes July 1 as the firm deadline. The law also extends the time frame to September 30, 2020 for the county boards of taxation to decide appeals.
