Section: Schedule of rates
4. a. At the time when municipal property tax bills are prepared pursuant to R.S.54:4-64 the municipal tax collector shall compute the amount of property tax reduction for the year for each property owner of qualified real rental property and shall provide a notice to inform the property owner receiving a property tax reduction of the amount thereof and of the owner's obligations under P.L.1976, c.63 (C.54:4-6.2 et seq.).
b. In computing the property tax reduction, if the current year property tax calculation reflects an assessment reduction from a base year assessment, other than as provided in subsection c. of this section, no property tax reduction has occurred and no rebate shall be due or payable for that property for the current tax year.
c. In the event a municipal-wide revaluation or reassessment is implemented in the current tax year, the property tax reduction shall be the difference between the amount of property tax paid or payable in the current tax year and the amount of property tax paid in the base year. The year in which a municipal-wide revaluation or reassessment is implemented shall become the base year in any subsequent tax year.
d. The tax collector shall compute the property tax reduction in accordance with any tax appeal judgments entered or tax appeal stipulations filed with a county tax board or court of competent jurisdiction as of the date of his calculation. If the tax collector receives notice of the entry of a tax appeal judgment or the filing of a stipulation with a county tax board or court of competent jurisdiction after the initial property tax reduction notice has been mailed to the property owner, he shall, within 30 working days, recalculate the property tax reduction accordingly and provide a revised notice of tax reduction to the property owner. For the purposes of this subsection, "receives notice" shall mean the tax collector has been notified by the owner of real property or the owner's agent, or otherwise made aware of the judgment or stipulation. A copy of the notice or any revised notice shall be provided to the rent leveling board, or similar agency charged with regulating rents or, where no such board exists, retained by the tax collector.
