Current through L. 2020, c. 136.
Section 54:4-2.47 - Taxable value of tangible personal property; computation
(a) The taxable value of tangible personal property used in business subject to taxation in each taxing district shall be at that percentage of true value as shall correspond to the average ratio of assessed to true value of real property promulgated by the Director of the Division of Taxation on October 1 of the pretax year, pursuant to P.L. 1954, c.86, for State school aid purposes, as the same may have been modified by the tax court; provided, nevertheless, that such average ratio shall not exceed the percentage level, in effect in the tax year, for expressing the taxable value of real property in the county. In the year in which a taxing district shall have completed and put into operation a district-wide adjustment of real property taxable valuations to conform to the percentage level established for expressing the taxable value of real property in the county, and if a statement to such effect has been included by the assessor in the affidavit prescribed by 54:4-36, the average ratio shall be presumed, subject to rebuttal, to be the same level as is established for the taxable value of real property in the county.
(b) The taxable value determined pursuant to subsection (a) of this section shall be taxed at the general real property tax rate of the taxing district wherein such property is found, for the use of such taxing district, in the manner provided by law. The person assessed for personal property shall be personally liable for the taxes thereon.
