Assessment Demonstration Program (ADP)
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 Municipal Assessors signed on to be the first in the State to take on this cost-saving project.
Since then, many changes have been put in place; changes will continue during the five year rollout of the program that concludes in 2018.
Annual Reassessment and the Impact on Property Taxes
- Annual Reassessments: Ensure that everyone is paying their fair share of taxes (meaning not less and not more than they should) by annually revising every assessment up or down to 100% of current market value.
- 5-Year Internal Data Collection Program: Increase the frequency of property data collection/verification so taxpayers aren't unfairly left paying less or more than they should be for a decade or more.
- Remove Fractional Assessments: Improve the transparency of the tax process for taxpayers by doing away with the confusing fractional assessments of the old tax model.
- Assessment Accuracy: Reduce the need for costly appeals that cost the appealing property owner and the municipality time and money by getting the assessment right the first time.
- Assessment Calendar Changes: Reduce the negative budgetary effects to municipalities by moving up the appeals deadline so appeals are completed and known before budgets are finalized.
