Welcome to the Office of the Assessor. The Assessor’s office is under the jurisdiction of the Burlington County Board of Taxation and the New Jersey Division of Taxation. This office is part of the Medford Municipal Budget and stands ready to serve the community’s assessment needs.
Among the many functions of the office, the Assessor’s office values all real property in the municipality for the purpose of tax assessments, prepares the tax list, maintains records of every parcel, is responsible for maintaining the community’s tax map and aids in educating the public about the assessment function.
