The assessor is responsible to see that all property is the Borough is assessed at the correct value. The office also handles applications for Veteran Deductions, Senior Citizen Deductions, Deductions for those that are permanently disabled and for Veterans who meet the criteria for being tax exempt to permanent disability.

Sometimes property owners feel like their property is assessed higher than it should be. Every taxpayer is eligible to file a tax appeal.
