2017 Atlantic City Halloween Parade

Search homes for sale at the Jersey ShoreThe Atlantic City Rotary Club performs philanthropic work for the Jersey Shore community all year long. For something a little different and a lot of fun, they decided to put together the 2017 Atlantic City Halloween Parade. Beginning at 3 pm, watch as floats, local drill teams, cars, and costumed participants wind their way down the historic Atlantic City Boardwalk.

Since fall weather can be unpredictable, there’s a contingency plan in case of rain. Currently, the weatherman predicts possible showers on and off throughout the afternoon of the 28th. We all know how that can change, though. If rain does occur, the parade then takes place on the 29th. Check the weather report ahead of time and make sure you dress appropriately.

How to Participate in the 2017 Atlantic City Halloween Parade

The deadline to enter vehicles and floats into the parade has already passed. However, simply show up in costume on the 28th and you’ll automatically be allowed to walk in the parade. Line-up and judging start promptly at 2 pm outside the Showboat. Prizes will be awarded for best costume.

Dress up in your favorite costumes and head out to the Boardwalk on Saturday, October 28th. The Halloween fun starts early this year. All ages welcome.

Search homes for sale at the Jersey ShoreYou must provide sufficient evidence to justify a decrease in your Jersey Shore home’s value.  You may use comparable sales in your area.  However, these homes must have been sold between October 1, 2015 and October 1, 2016.  These homes should be similar in square footage and lot size, amount of bedrooms and baths, amenities and age to your own Jersey Shore home.  Homes directly located in your Jersey Shore neighborhood receive the highest consideration.  Two or three good quality comps should be sufficient.  Don’t use more than five.

Usually, you do not need a lawyer to file a Jersey Shore homeowner tax assessment appeal. However, you will if the property is owned by a business, is held in trust or is part of an estate.  An official appraisal is not necessary.  If you do hire an appraiser, they will need to appear before the Board to offer their expert testimony.  Typically, appraisers charge extra for this.

Deadlines for the Jersey Shore Homeowner Tax Assessment Appeal

Anyone wishing to file a Jersey Shore homeowner tax assessment appeal must do so before 4:30pm on April 3, 2017.  Comparable sales and appraiser reports must be filed no later than seven days before your Board of Taxation hearing.  You can download the official Jersey Shore homeowner tax assessment appeal forms and instructions when you visit the Atlantic County Board of Taxation web page here.
