This revaluation was initiated by the Morris County Board of Taxation in the fall of 2001.  The determination to order the revaluation was based on the statistical analysis of assessed values compared to market value.  Observance of different tests comparing these two values showed a defect rate higher than allowable under current regulations as promulgated by the N.J. Division of Taxation.  These observances displayed an inequitable balance and distribution of the local property tax burden among all of the taxpayers in Jefferson Township.  A consent order was agreed upon and signed in May 2002 that a township wide revaluation would be completed by January 1, 2006 and implemented for the year 2006.  Their presentation describes how Jefferson Township is achieving this goal.
