The tax rate on your bill is determined by the Camden County Board of Taxation based upon budgets submitted by the Borough of Bellmawr, the County of Camden, local School Boards, and is relation to the total assessed value of the municipality. Changes in budges, tax rates and assessments all affect your taxes. State school aid, part of which comes from NJ State Income Tax, is based on the equalized valuation of assessments. The New Jersey State Constitution requires all properties to be assessed at “fair market” value. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain assessments, keep up with market prices and cope with inflation. At times, market conditions warrant “Revaluation” or “Reassessment” programs to maintain “fair market value”.
Assistant Tax Assessor: Tina A. Johnson
Improvements to your property may affect the assessed value. They are, but not limited to: conversions of an attic, basements, garage or porch into living space and the installation of bathrooms (full & ½), fireplace, central heating/AC, porches, patios & decks, garages & other such structures, siding, in-ground swimming pools and home additions.
When you are issued a Building Permit, you may expect visits from both the Assessor and the Construction Code Official as their duties require. Improvements may be subject to added Assessments which begin the 1st of the month following substantial completion, occupancy or use. The Added Assessment list is submitted to the Camden County Tax Board on October 1st, and the tax thereon is due November 1st of the same year.
If you wish to demolish an old building, consider the tax cost and usefulness before you tear it down. Any building standing as of October 1st of the pre-tax year may be taxable for the entire following year. A demolition permit is required from the Construction Code Official.
