TAX PAYMENT INFORMATION

 

2016/2017 Tax Rate Certification

First quarter 2017 taxes were due February 1, 2017.  To avoid interest payments for the first quarter, your tax payment must have been processed by close of business (4:30 p.m.) on Friday, February 10, 2017.

“State Statute N.J.S.A. 54:4-64.3) The validity of any tax or assessment, or the time at which it shall be payable, shall not be affected by the failure of a taxpayer to receive a tax bill, but every taxpayer is put on notice to ascertain from the proper official of the taxing district the amount which may be due for taxes or assessments against him or his property.”

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

The Township taxpayer now has several options for tax payment. For Tax Payment options, click here.

After hours payments (checks only) may be left in the drop box at Town Hall.

DEER MANAGEMENT WITHIN THE TOWNSHIP OF COLTS NECK

On September 14, 2016 the Township Committee adopted a resolution amending the discharge ordinance (Ordinance #2016-17).  Hunting will now be permitted on “parcels of three (3) acres or larger” which may be “aggregated continuous acreage of more than one landowner”. This is a step forward designed to reduce the deer population and result in fewer motor vehicle accidents, reduced incidents of Lyme disease, reduced loss to agriculture and damage to property.

What is required to meet the amended ordinance?

  1. Applicable to private property only.
  2. Hunters will possess all appropriate licenses and zone permits issued by NJ State Fish &Wildlife Division for hunting white-tailed deer.
  3. Written permission from all pertinent landowners must be in hunters’ possession while hunting. NO exceptions.
