Borough of Butler Property Reassessment
The Borough of Butler has been ordered by the Morris County Tax Board to reassess all of the properties in Butler for the 2023 tax year as part of a now annual reassessment program. This will involve an inspection of a portion of the properties (approximately 20% of properties) in the Borough during the year of 2022. The Borough has hired a vendor, Associated Appraisal Group of Cranford, NJ to assist with the inspections. Inspections will begin on or about June 1st, 2022 and will continue for several months. Associated Appraisal Group has mailed letters to all affected borough property owners announcing the reassessment and introducing the process of inspection of properties. Even if you were inspected in 2021 you may be re-inspected in 2022 as part of the now annual inspection cycle. Both exterior and interior inspection will be done and Inspectors will be walking throughout the Borough measuring the exterior of the structures to be inspected.
All inspectors will display company identification and will be carrying a tablet device. (Similar to a tablet)

Due to Covid-19 and social distancing concerns some residents may have concerns about inspectors being inside their homes. As a potential substitute for an in-person interior inspection, Associated Appraisal Group is offering residents an optional "virtual inspection”. The virtual inspection is a process where the inspectors will connect with residents via an online service (Zoom, Teams, Facetime, etc.) to allow them to describe or "see" the interior over a video link. Inspection cards will be left at properties with instructions on how to reach the inspectors for this type of connection or for a follow up in-person visits. If a resident does not have the ability to access these virtual services, Associated Appraisal Group will attempt to make accommodations for them.
We greatly appreciate everyone’s cooperation during these inspections
