Town-Wide Revaluations Underway and On Schedule

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- The property revaluations taking place in Bloomfield, which began this spring, are well underway, and without incident.

“Approximately 20% of the over 13,000 properties in town have been inspected, which puts us on schedule for completing field inspections by October. There are seven inspectors in the field, one commercial inspector and six residential inspectors assigned to several parts of town,” said Bloomfield Tax Assessor Joe Pisauro. “All representatives visiting properties have been background checked by the Bloomfield Police Department, wear lanyards and present their identification to all residents.”

The purpose of the revaluation is to ensure that all real property is assessed fairly and equitably according to its fair market value, as ordered by Essex County, usually every 10 years. Glen Rock-based Appraisal Systems Inc. was contracted to conduct the property revaluation after conducting previous town-wide revals in 1992 and 2010. The specific locations of inspectors are posted on ASINJ.com. Residents are reporting that these inspections have taken less than 30 minutes, as the Township expected. The process is expected to be completed by October.

The inspectors, as was reported to all property owners in letters mailed this spring, will ring the doorbell to inform that they are there and request an interior inspection. If the owner is not home when an inspector arrives, he or she will measure and inspect the outside of the structure, including fenced back yards, taking pictures which will only be used for inspection purposes. The inspector will then leave a yellow card with a date and time for a callback to complete the interior inspection.

Any residents with questions about the revaluation process can contact the Tax Assessor’s Office at 973-680-4021 or by visiting Room 108 of Town Hall.
