Local New Jersey Property Tax Expertise with a National Footprint
The New Jersey commercial real estate market continues to shift and adjust to industry changes as the economy recovers. With the consumer and tenant shift in industries, such as retail and office, and the boom in industrial and multifamily developments, it is imperative that New Jersey property owners accurately manage portfolios.
New Jersey’s high tax rates can be extremely punitive for property owners who do not review and manage their assessments annually. The New Jersey assessment system adds complexity to the annual review process with value ranges 15% above and 15% below the average ratio equalized market value known as “the corridor.” If the equalized market value falls within this corridor, assessments are deemed reasonable. As a result, filing appeals on marginal cases can potentially result in unnecessary New Jersey Tax Court filing fees and legal costs and increase the risk of assessment hike.
Ryan’s New Jersey experts are available to assist property owners with annual reviews and provide an understanding between assessed values, “corridor” equalization ratios, and the resulting fair market values. They are well versed statewide in pre-acquisition due diligence tax estimates for existing properties and new construction projects and can provide assistance to owners navigating pilot and other abatement programs. Ryan clients rely on the local team to help them understand the full scope of annual assessment reviews and ensure their properties are assessed fairly to remain competitive in the market.
