New Jersey municipalities typically have a deadline of April 1st for property tax appeals in most years (and possibly a day or two later if the appeal deadline falls on a weekend as it did this year).  However, for some municipalities that have undergone a revaluation of all of their properties or have undergone a reassessment, that deadline might be May 1st for tax year 2023.

In Somerset County, only five municipalities had the normal deadline for appeals (Montgomery Township, North Plainfield Borough, Raritan Borough, Somerville Borough and South Bound Brook Borough).  The remaining Somerset towns have the May 1 deadline for their tax appeals this year.

In Bergan County, at least twenty-five of the municipalities in the county are undergoing annual reassessments or revaluations and will have a deadline of May 1 for this tax year, including large municipalities such as Hackensack, Paramus and East Rutherford.

Various municipalities in Morris County have also had their deadline extended to May 1 for this tax year, including Chatham Borough and Mendham Township.
