Tax Record Book
In December the tax record book is available for review by the public. This provides the public with an opportunity to review any property assessments before those figures are filed with the Middlesex County Board of Taxation.
The County Tax Board adopts the official Tax book by January 10 of each year. The deadline for filing tax appeals to challenge an individual assessment is April 1.
