General Overview of the Tax Assessor's Office

The Township of Ocean is currently conducting a complete revaluation of all properties effective for the tax year 2017.  The purpose of the revaluation is to determine current value and to ensure a fair and equitable distribution of the tax burden among all the property owners. To properly assess your property, a complete inspection of the interior and exterior of each building is necessary, along with measuring and photographing the exterior.  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.
