Tax Assessment

Jacob Nieman, CTA, Tax Assessor

HOURS: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays

General Overview of the Tax Assessor's Office

The Township of Ocean is currently conducting an in-house, desk-top reassessment of all properties, effective for the tax year 2020.  The purpose of the reassessment is to have the total assessment equal the current market value. This reassessment is required due to Ocean Township’s participation in the Assessment Demonstration Program. The program ensures a fair and equitable distribution of the tax burden among all the property owners. Notices of new assessments for the 2020 Tax Year will be mailed out by December 1st 2019. As part of the reassessment, Appraisal Systems, Inc. will be inspecting 25% of Township properties this year. The inspections have begun and will continue until late summer.  If you own a rental property, please advise the occupants of the upcoming inspection. For additional information on the revaluation, please click here.
