Taxes are due on the first of February, May, August and November. There is a 10 day grace period after which interest is applied, calculated at 8% on the first $1,500 past due and 18% for any amount over $1,500. (per NJSA 54 4, 1967). Properties with delinquent municipal charges (taxes, sewer and interest) totaling $10,000 or more at calendar year end are subject to an additional 6% year end penalty.
The tax rate is determined by the budgets of the Township, County, and schools.
The Sewer Utility rates will remain the same in 2019. Residential properties will be billed a minimum of $280 for the first 100,000 Gallons of water utilized. The water billing months are November through April (of prior year). This amount is doubled to annualize the water used for the year. It is done this way to avoid the months that you usually utilize more water for such activities as watering lawns, filling pools, washing cars, etc.
