How Your Tax Is Determined 

Your total Real Estate Tax includes your school tax, county tax, library tax, open space tax and your local purpose tax. Each taxing authority has their own tax rate. These tax rates are added together for a total tax rate each year. If you have any questions regarding any of these other tax rates you should contact that department and not the Borough Tax Office. The total tax rate is multiplied by your total assessment. This will give you the total Real Estate Taxes that you will be responsible for paying each year.

General Information 

Due Dates: Taxes are due February 1st, May 1st, August 1st and November 1st. There is a ten (10) day grace period.
Interest: Interest will be charged at the rate of 8% on the first $1,500.00 of delinquency and 18% on any amount of delinquency over $1,500.00
Receipts: To receive a receipt for a payment please include the entire bill along with a self-addressed stamped envelope. No receipt will be sent unless a self-addressed stamped envelope is included.
Mortgages: If you have a mortgage company escrowing for taxes and they do not receive a copy of the tax bill from the Tax Office it is your responsibility to see that they get a copy.
Change of Mailing Address: Please submit all changes of mailing address to the Tax Assessor on a separate piece of paper. Do not make changes to your bill.
As stated on your Tax Bill, If you are not sending an invoice with your payment, Tax payments must include complete Block/Lot/Qualification numbers or the payment will be returned. “Account Numbers” are not valid identifying numbers. If you have the “Account Numbers” set up in your online bill pay, please make the necessary adjustments. This is the only way to ensure payments are properly posted to the correct account.

Note to New Owners 

Tax bills are to be given to new owners upon sale of the property. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the owner from paying property taxes and interest will be applied to all late payments. Please contact the Tax Office if you need a copy of your tax bill.
