Appealing Your Assessment

  • $ 500,001.00 - $1,000,000.00 - $100.00
  • $1,000,001.00 and over - $150.00
  • Appeals on classifications - $ 25.00
  • Appeals on valuation and classification, sum of previous two categories
  • Appeals not covered above - $ 25.00
  • No fee for contesting denial of applications for veterans, senior citizens or disabled persons and their surviving spouses.

Checks should be made payable to the Mercer County Tax Administrator.

Deadlines

Petitions to either the County Board of Taxation or directly to the State Tax Court must be filed and received by April 1, of the tax year, due to the undertaking of municipal revaluations.
