Here is some helpful information about your Real Estate Tax Payments:


  • Your tax bill is divided into four payments.  The bottom stubs are for the 3rd and 4th quarter payments of the current year and the top stubs are for the 1st and 2nd quarter payments (estimated) of the following year.  The color of the tax bill will also change yearly.

  • Taxes are due February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1 of each year.  There is a 10 day grace period before interest is added.


  • Interest is calculated at 8% for the 1st $1,500.00 that is delinquent and 18% for any amount above that.  Any property tax delinquency exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) at is subject to a six percent (6 %) year end penalty. As a statutory officer of the State of New Jersey, the tax collector is obligated to follow all state statutes regarding property tax collection, including billing, due dates, interest on delinquent tax payments, and tax sale procedures. The tax collector is required by state law to hold a tax sale each year for the prior year's unpaid municipal charges. If you do not pay your property taxes, a lien will be sold against the property for any unpaid taxes owed from the previous year.. Your property is not sold at the tax sale; a lien is placed on it.


  • As needed, the Tax Office will mail delinquent notices to you as a reminder. However, interest charges have already been added and must be paid.  Interest amounts change daily so it is important that you call the Tax Office for the current up-to-date amount that is owed, otherwise, your account will be left with an open principal balance.

  • By November 11th of the current year, if you have any unpaid delinquent taxes, your property will be subject to a tax sale and a lien may be placed on your home or property.

Remember, it is your responsibility to pay your Real Estate Taxes on time.  By law, the Tax Office must collect interest on delinquencies.  If you need assistance in understanding the breakdown of your tax bill, please do not hesitate to visit the Tax Office at Borough Hall or call (201-342-1736 ext. 229) and I will be more than happy to assist you.


A tax payment box is conveniently located next to the main entrance at Borough Hall for after hours tax payment drop-offs. Please place your property tax check in the secure drop box on nights, weekends or whenever the Tax Office is closed.
