5 Year Property Tax Abatements and Exemptions

Abatements and exemptions from property taxation are available to qualified property owners where the municipality has adopted an authorizing ordinance. Under the 5-Year Abatement and Exemption Law, an ordinance may provide for abatement and/or exemption for new construction of dwellings, conversion or conversion alteration into dwelling use, and improvement to an existing dwelling.

Commercial and industrial structures may also be eligible if an appropriate authorizing ordinance has been adopted. The municipal assessor can advise an interested taxpayer whether exemptions and abatements have been authorized by the governing body and to what extent. Form E/A-1 (PDF 112K) (which must be filed within 30 days of completion of the improvement, conversion or construction) may be obtained from the assessor's office.
