The Tax Collector approves and monitors property tax deductions, including senior citizen and veteran deductions. Property tax notices are usually mailed out in July. Taxes are payable quarterly on the 1st day of February, May, August and November, with a 10-day grace period. Payments must be made on or before the due date to avoid interest charges. Postmarks are not accepted.
Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the owner from paying property taxes or delinquent interest on late payments - Per NJSA 54:4-64.
There are several options for payment.
Pay on-line by e-check, debit or credit card https://secure.municipay.com/payapp/public/ECInvoiceSearch.html?siteId=snrjaeatx4&urlKey=832669da57d5b3003d73016e192c8f7e
