Calculation of Property Tax

In accordance with the provisions of N.J.S.A. 54:4-64 , the first half of taxes (Preliminary) of any year are generally based on half of the previous year's taxes.  When the bill for the second half (Final) is rendered, the tax rate has been established and the total years tax fixed. The estimated (Preliminary) amount is deducted from the total and the remainder becomes the second half taxes.

Quarterly tax payments become due on Aug. 1. Nov. 1 Feb. 1. and May 1.

Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the obligation of the taxpayer N.J.S.A. 54:4-64.

Returned checks will incur a $20.00 handling charge.

When ownership of a property changes, this tax bill is to be forwarded to the new owner(s) or thier paying agent.

If you wish to make an address change, please contact the office in WRITING via fax (201) 833-1129, via email or mail.
