Taxpayer Information

TAX OFFICE NOTICE

The Deadline for Senior Freeze Applications has been EXTENDED

to December 31,2020

Tax payers are urged to read all of the information contained on the front and back of their tax bills. Please note that
according to New Jersey Sate Law failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt a property owner from payment of taxes.

Tax Bills are due every year in the following months, February, May, August, and November. The Township does permit a 10-day grace period however, payments not received in the Tax Collectors Office within the grace period will be charged interest back to the 1st.

Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt a property owner from paying taxes or the interest due on delinquent taxes.

  • Please be advised that the State of New Jersey does not allow the Tax Collector to acknowledge postmarks.
    Post-dated checks are NOT accepted and will be returned.
  • A payment will not be applied towards an account until it is in the physical possession of the Township,
    regardless of postmark dates. If mailing your payment allow sufficient time for the mail to arrive prior to the end
    of the grace period to avoid interest charges.
  • If the 10 th falls on a weekend or legal holiday, you have until the next business day to make payment.


If you do not receive your tax bill please contact the Tax Office. New residents who do not receive a tax bill from the
seller of a newly purchased home at closing must call the Collector’s office to request a duplicate copy.

When money is escrowed for taxes, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to notify the tax office in writing with the bank code of their lending agency.

If a property is refinanced or sold to another bank, the bank code must be changed. When mortgages are satisfied, the tax office must be notified in writing to remove the bank code.
