Back in September, I blogged about the history of tax searching in New Jersey. The difference between then and now is astounding. Thirty years ago, if you required a Tax and Assessment Search from a municipality, you needed to prepare well in advance. New Jersey State Statute had and still allows Tax Collectors 10 business days to complete a request for a Municipal Tax and Assessment Search. Time aside, do you remember having to write separate checks - one check payable to the Tax Collector, and the other to the Clerk (for the Assessment Search)? Searches were usually handwritten with no particular uniformity, and of course were sent out via regular mail. Times really have changed.

Today, our reliable New Jersey Tax and Assessment Searches help to eliminate one more obstacle to timely closings. Results in 24 hours or less give you an edge when planning and scheduling your closings. Our searches are certified and we offer statewide coverage so no need to manage multiple tax entities. In the event that you have a question, our seasoned professionals have the knowledge to answer even the most complex tax questions.

At Signature, we are continuously working to improve our products and services. Our New Jersey Tax and Assessment Searches are just one example of how we offer you the best tools to help you achieve successful and timely closings. How can results in 24 hours or less help your business?
