Lindenwold’s Department of Assessment Services determines the market value of all real estate within the Borough for assessing purposes. The Assessing Department handles all deed transfers, property owner mailing address changes, tax exempt applications. The Assessor's Office also provides applications for and answers questions about the following property tax deduction programs:
- Income-qualified homeowners who are 65 years and older or disabled may receive a $250 deduction on their property taxes.
- Qualified veterans and widows of veterans can receive a $250 deduction on their property taxes.
- Permanently disabled veterans may be entitled to full exemption from property taxes.
The Assessor's Office also administers the Five-Year Residential Abatement Program. Certain qualifying improvements completed through a valid permit (i.e. additions, decks, large sheds, extra bathrooms, finished basements, etc.) which would add value to a home 20 years of age or older, may be eligible for a Property Tax Abatement. Upon approval, the assessed value which is added will be abated for 5 years, up to a maximum of $25,000.
PLEASE NOTE NEW QUALIFYING VETERANS’ SERVICE:
Enacted as Public Laws of 2017, there has been an extension of eligibility for Veteran’s Property Tax Deduction and Disabled Veteran’s Property Tax Exemption to now include members of the United States Armed Forces assigned to the rescue and recovery mission at the World Trade Center between September 11, 2001 and May 30, 2002.
