Tax Assessment Appeals
FAQ – Should I file an Appeal? You cannot file an appeal because you think your taxes are too high, but only if you think your assessment is too high. Your assessment should be no higher than the fair market value of your property, so before you decide to file an appeal you should know the value of your property on the current market, and be able to support that value using sales of comparable properties. Below are links to a brochure with more information and to the appeal forms with instructions.
Senior and Veteran Deductions
Each deduction is $250.00 deducted from your tax bill on an annual basis. Eligibility requirements and instructions are contained within each application. Supplemental Income Form must be submitted with the Senior/Disabled/Surviving Spouse Form. The Annual Income Statement for Approved Senior/Disabled Deduction must be submitted annually to the Tax Collector once your deduction is approved in order to maintain it.

For all other property owners seeking exemption from property tax, the Initial Statement must be completed when first applying, and a Further Statement should be submitted every third year once an exemption is approved.
Home Improvement Exemption
Voorhees Township participates in the State H.I.E. program. If your home is at least 20 years old and you make any improvement that increases the value of your home, then you can receive a 5 year exemption for the amount of increase in assessment, up to $25,000.00. You must apply within 30 days of completing the project.
Change of Address
The Municipal Assessor controls the records for the mailing address of all property owners in the Township. This is where your tax and sewer bills will be sent, and any other mail sent by the Township. The address used is the same as the address which appears on your recorded deed when you purchase the property. If you want to change where your mail is sent, you must complete and return the following form. You may be required to show authorization to sign for a corporation, partnership, or trust.
