UPPER TOWNSHIP FUNDS INFORMAL TAX APPEAL PROCESS

The Upper Township Committee met earlier this week and decided to allocate $4,000 to pay for informal tax appeals to be handled by the tax assessor at home.  The Township Committee says this process will help save the township funding as it handles a new wave of tax appeals created by the depreciation of homes during the recession.  Upper Township has recently lost about $30 million in ratables recently according to a report in the Upper Township Gazette.
