11:00 - 12:00 pm Tax Assessor: Legislative Agent & Municipal Employee

(1 Administrative Credit)

The multiple roles and responsibilities of the Tax Assessor will
be explored. A ‘unique creature’ in the statutory scheme of
things, the Assessor is a statutory officer generally regulated
by the NJ Division of Taxation, subservient to a County Board
of Taxation and beholden to a municipality. This construct,
while diverse, can give rise to complex interplay and legal
activity.

Presenters:
John Lloyd, Esq. AMANJ Co-Counsel

12:00 - 1:00 pm Past Presidents Luncheon

The first shared meal of the conference is so named to commemorate
and honor the dedication of AMANJ past presidents.
Look for those special guests to give them a warm
welcome and thank them.

1:00 - 3:00 pm Trusts, Life Estates & Elder Law

(2 Administrative Credits)

New Jersey elder law encompasses a broad spectrum of legislation,
rules and regulations focused on the protection and
nurture of New Jersey seniors. The area of trusts and life
estates, often of concern to property tax professionals, will
be explored in detail. The legal background, the form and substance
of these ownership types, and their effect on the area of
property tax will be highlighted.

Moderator: Jane Casagrande, CTA

Presenters:Diana Anderson, Esq.


3:00 - 5:00 pm New Jersey Tax Court and Appraisal Adjustments/Third Party Tax Appeals

(2 Appraisal Credits)

This session is a double header. The first part focuses on the
New Jersey Tax Court’s treatment of appraisals and the adjustments
included within. Different judges will view the reports
differently. How are adjustments viewed from the bench? What
is the level of importance? Does backing of adjustments need to
be voluminous or scant?


The second part of the session offers an overview of the ‘Third
Party Tax Appeal.’ Neighbors filing against neighbors, school
districts beating the bushes for more ratables, filing against commercial
properties, among other instances. The interaction of
the parties and their requirements will be unpacked during this
newer area of interest.

(2 Appraisal Credits)

Sometimes commercial uses cannot be neatly framed. Standardizing
in an attempt to determine value then becomes difficult.
Appraising certain specific use commercial properties
brings a number of challenges. Whether gathering internal
corporate data, acquiring financials, profit and loss or income
and expense statements, there are certain enterprises that
require one to think outside the box. Several specific use
property types are examined during this session to highlight
some of the hurdles, but also to acknowledge standards and
practices that can ease the determination of value.
