The tax collector is charged with the responsibility for receiving and collecting all taxes and assessments both current and delinquent. The Office of the Tax Collector bills just under 3,000 taxpayers and collects taxes quarterly. Taxes are due February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1. A ten-day grace period to the 10th of the month is allowed by Resolution of the Mayor and Council after which interest is charged from the first day of the month in which payments are due.
Taxpayers are urged to read all of the information contained on the front and the back of their tax bills. Please note that according to New Jersey State Law, failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt a property owner from payment of taxes.
If you are mailing a check to pay your taxes, please be certain that you are paying the amount for the correct quarter. If you would like a receipt, please send the entire tax bill with your check & self-addressed, stamped envelope. Your bill will be receipted and mailed back to you. If you do not desire a receipt, then just mail the property stub and check or place in the drop box.
