Re-evaluation of home values in East Windsor Township for property taxes
The ever increasing cost of residential property taxes of East Windsor Township has become a matter of concern. It seems that every year the property taxes are escalating and new home owners are hit the hardest. The tax assessment for new homes is done every year as compared to the tax assessment of older homes which is not being done at the same frequency for the other East Windsor township residents. The re-evaluation for the older East Windsor township residents was not done since 1989. It was supposed to happen last year in 2007 then it was pushed off till 2008. Now, it is pushed back again till 2009. It seems that the re-evaluation for the older home owners of East Windsor seems to be postponed every year for some reason or another. As a direct result of this, the new home owners are paying an improportionate portion of the tax share every year. We, the new home owners of East Windsor township, ask that this matter be addressed and resolved, immediately, and the tax be re-calculated and re-assessed by using fair and appropriate means across all the East Windsor township residents. Also, considering this re-evaluation period from its original effective date and then backtracking and calculating a tax credit for the appropriate amount based on that for the new home owner residents. This petition is being started regarding this issue of concern.
