Office of the Municipal Tax Collector
The Tax Collector performs a wide range of duties including preparation and mailing of annual tax, refuse and sewer bills, posting and processing all tax payments, providing a variety of reports that reflect accurate collection and enforcing all State Statues regarding the collection of taxes.
Taxes are due on the 1st of February, May, August and November with a grace period extending to the 10th of each quarter. If the 10th falls on a weekend or legal holiday, you have until the next business day to make payment. Once the grace period has passed, interest will be charged back to the due date. The State of New Jersey does not allow the tax collector to acknowledge postmarks. Taxes must be received in the collector’s office on or before the 10th. Payments are posted on the day that they are received in our office.
Senior Freeze Property Tax Reimbursement Program
The Senior Freeze property tax reimbursement program has been a vital lifeline for many seniors and disabled individuals throughout New Jersey, helping to keep their property taxes stable so they can remain in their homes well into their golden years. This year, due to COVID-19, we have extended the application deadline until February 1, 20201 to provide more time so that we can ensure as many eligible taxpayers as possible take advantage of this program.
