June 1st Property Tax Grace Period

Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Allowing Municipalities to Extend Grace Period for May 1st Property Tax Payments until June 1st

TRENTON – Governor Murphy today signed Executive Order No. 130, which allows municipalities to extend the grace period for property tax payments due on May 1st to June 1st. Such an extension would provide much-needed relief to homeowners struggling financially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Allowing municipalities the option of extending the grace period for May property tax payments is the right thing to do as many New Jerseyans are impacted financially as a result of this crisis,” said Governor Murphy. “Leaders of towns and cities across the state have been trying to find ways to lessen the blow on local residents, and with this action, they are empowered to provide relief to homeowners as we continue to do everything possible to fight this pandemic.”

Tax Department Payment Update

Dear Tax Payers & Public,

Please note that as of Wednesday March 18, 2020, City Hall will be closed to the public. In an effort to make this change more of an easy transition, there will be a drop off box at the Police Department for checks. Please bring an envelope clearly marked “Tax Collector”. If you do not have one, there will be some available. Please seal and place in the slot on the left of the desk. These will be picked up the next morning and processed as such. I would appreciate no cash being left, as we will be unable to present a receipt for you at the time of payment. Online payments are accepted here. Click here to be taken to the Tax Collector’s page.

Sincerely,

Stacey L. Carron, CTC
