Highlands property owners whose property suffered “material damage” as a direct result of Superstorm Sandy may qualify for a reduction of their property assessment for 2013.
YOU are required to notify the tax assessor of Highlands in writing by Jan. 10, 2013, in order to receive an assessment adjustment.
There is a form in the “new, NEW” borough hall (Trailer located between Shore & 2nd by recycling center) that you fill out your name, address, block and lot & that you have damages suffered due to Frankenstorm Sandy.
