The Division of Property Valuation and Review (PVR) staff which includes both office staff and traveling District Advisors provides support to municipalities in developing and administrating property tax policies and related programs at the local level.
PVR supports computer software programs used locally for grand list valuation and property tax administration.
We provide Municipal Officials with training, online tools, and a wide variety of information to help ensure property is assessed fairly and equitably. Our goal is to provide answers to common questions that municipal governments ask to help meet their obligations.
More recently, we have helped facilitate the creation of a Common Level of Appraisal (CLA) Study Committee. The new committee is responsible for the study of an aggregate common level of appraisal in a merged school district to determine the statewide education tax for each municipality in that district. Find out more about the 2016 Act 132 Legislative Study Committee on Aggregate CLA and their findings.
