Once I get a judgment lowering my tax assessment, do I have to appeal again next year?

In most cases you do not. “Spot assessments” are not allowed in NJ, meaning your assessment may not be exclusively raised by the municipality. The “Freeze Act” also grants some protection from re-assessments. The are exceptions to this rule, for example if your municipality conducts a revaluation/reassessment, or if you make significant improvements to your property the Assessor may raise your assessment through an added assessment. But in the great majority of cases the tax appeal reduction will stand for multiple years, and it is not uncommon for a tax assessment to remain unchanged for as long as decades.
