Features and Benefits of Paying via E-Check, Credit or Debit Card:

• It’s convenient – residents can make a payment by e-check, credit or debit card 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

• It’s safe and secure – standard, commercial card networks are used.  The Borough does not receive or store account or card numbers.

• There is a fee charged by service providers. These fees are based on the type and amount of your payment. Please see the table below

The Borough does not receive any of these fees.

Important Notes:

Tax Payment Identification

If you are sending us payment without the payment coupon from your tax bill, PLEASE REFERENCE YOUR BLOCK AND LOT NUMBERS (and qualifier number, if you have one.)  That is the reference we look for in order to properly apply your payment.   This is particularly important if you have a different name and/or address on your check than the property you are paying for.  Thank you for your cooperation.

No Post-Dated Checks

Date your check the date you are writing it, not a future date. This is called “post-dating”, and it makes it impossible for us to deposit your check on time.  We are not allowed to hold payments for residents, so make sure that you do not post-date checks.  We do not want to have to return it to you.

Tax Payment Due Dates

Taxes are due February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1. The tax due dates are set by the State of New Jersey, and the only time the due date is different is in the 3rd Quarter, if we have to wait for the tax rate from the county.  By law, we must provide at least 25 days between the date of mailing the tax bill and the due date, so we often have to extend the due date for the August installment.   Extension of  the due date due to late mailing is done by Resolution of the Mayor and Council.

Grace Period

We allow a 10-day grace period in case of illness or inclement weather, but please keep in mind that the 10th is not the due date – it is the last day to pay without interest. Taxes can be paid online, by mail, by ACH withdrawal (call the Tax Collector to set this up), left in the secure drop-box in our parking lot (up until 4pm of the last day of the grace period) or in person in Borough Hall.  If taxes are received after closing on the due date, according to New Jersey statute, interest is due.
