South Amboy Pays Seven Property Tax Appeal Refunds

By Joseph L. Kuchie —

The City of South Amboy passed seven resolutions last Wednesday rewarding a number of local residents their property tax appeals.

A total of $25, 765.49 was rewarded to seven different households in South Amboy following appeals through the Tax Court of New Jersey. Each appeal was for the years 2011 and 2012 and averaged about $3,680 per home.

According to the tax map, each appeal came from properties located on Lighthouse Drive. Each property saw a reduction in assessed value between $100,000-200,000 from 2011 to 2012 and each received a tax adjustment of over $3000.

The Chief Financial Officer of South Amboy has been instructed to draw a check for each household no later than March 29, 2013.

The city also passed a resolution issuing a tax refund to a family on Raritan Street. According to Resolution 57-2013, an overpayment was made by Register Settlement Services, Inc. of $1,421.46 and the company has requested that the refund be sent directly to the homeowners.

The city’s CFO has been authorized to issue the family a check for the said refund.

Mayor Henry thanked everyone involved in the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. He said the Police Department did a very good job of keeping the streets safe and making the day a very family oriented atmosphere.

Councilman Donald Applegate and Councilwoman Zusette Dato were not in attendance for the meeting.
