Why did I receive an estimated tax bill?

This year, municipalities in the State of New Jersey are required to issue estimated tax bills for the 3rd Quarter due August 1, 2020. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the State of New Jersey extended its fiscal year to September 30, 2020 causing the certified property tax rate to be delayed.
