View and download the Petition for Appeal form (PDF)

In order to file a tax appeal, you must file the A-1 Petition of Appeal form with the Hunterdon County Board of Taxation, by the statutory deadline. The instructions are included with the appeal form, as well as the filing fee requirements. The statutory filing deadline is April 1st, or forty-five days from the mailing of the notice of assessment, for most municipalities. Only municipalities which have undergone a district-wide revaluation or reassessment have a May 1st filing deadline. If you are unable to download the petition of appeal form, using the link above, you may contact our office at 908-788-1174 to have a form mailed to you.
