We are pleased to announce the Supreme Court of New Jersey has granted an extension of the property tax appeal deadline in New Jersey. The Chief Justice has issued an Order extending the deadline from April 1, 2020 to at least May 1, 2020.  

The New Jersey State Bar Association (NJSBA) worked diligently with stakeholders to ensure that taxpayers are not prejudiced in light of the current turmoil surrounding COVID-19.  As the Immediate Past Chair of the NJSBA Taxation Law Section, and its Liaison to the NJSBA Board of Trustees, David Wolfe, Skoloff & Wolfe managing partner, played a pivotal role in advocating for the extension on behalf of property owners, taxpayers, and practitioners. 

According to a letter issued by the Taxation Section, the extension of these filing deadlines will address critical due process concerns for taxpayers and taxing districts across the State of New Jersey who are facing barriers to access law firms, businesses, and the courts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the coronavirus outbreak continues to expand, prompting unprecedented closures, cancellations, and rescheduling of events throughout the State, corporate and residential property taxpayers are currently, and are expected to further be, severely disrupted.
