Tax Assessor

Although funded by the municipality, the assessor is under the jurisdiction of the County and State Division of Taxation; not the Township of West Orange.

The Tax Assessor is responsible for identifying, listing and valuing all real properties within the Township. Sales, income and cost data are analyzed in order to determine the assessed value of each property included on the Tax List, which is presented to the Essex County Board of Taxation each January. This Tax List also includes a directory for property identification, information concerning exempt properties, tax data and a schedule of all tax ratables within the Township.
