The tax bills for the 3rd and 4th Quarter of 2014 and 1st and 2nd quarters of 2015 were mailed to all property owners.

Please note:   Governor Christie has delayed funding the Homestead Benefit Program, which was reported in newspapers and on local television stations several weeks ago.  Funding is anticipated in May 2015, and once received, new tax bills will be issued and mailed to all property owners.  If the Homestead Benefit Program is further delayed by the Governor, the credit would be reflected in next year’s regular tax mailing sent out the first week of July.

The 3rd Quarter 2014 tax payment is due August 1, 2014.  The 3rd quarter’s grace period ends 4:30 p.m. on Monday, August 11, 2014.

Please contact the Township’s Tax Collector’s Office, 732-462-5470, prompt #2, with any tax payment questions.
