It's been a few months since my township(GLASSBORO) received the notice letters for the property reassessment pilot program taking place this year in GLOUCESTER county. Has anyone received a walk through inspection on their property yet? I am interested to see what townships are actually getting the inspections? If you did receive an inspection, was it after June?

It is my understanding that they just started and the first towns slotted to be done are: Glassboro, National Park, Swedesboro, West Deptford Twp. and Washington Twp. No details yet on when others will be done. I know Logan was fighting this as they wanted to keep the assessments in house, but I don't know if they eventually went along with it, I'm assuming they did.

Supposedly this will not affect the actual property taxes paid. They are simply trying to perform better assessments. The argument is that if the property values are assessed higher (chances are they will be) then the cost per $100 will simply be reduced and the taxes paid will remain the same. Who knows.

I do know though that the major sticking point is that the surveys are being done by contractors right now and there is a lot of questions as to how accurate they will be. A lot of people were complaining that the contractors assessments often contain far more errors than a local assessors.
