TAX PAYMENT INFORMATION

Please note:   Governor Christie has delayed funding the Homestead Benefit Program, which was reported in newspapers and on local television stations earlier this year.  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 4th Quarter 2014 tax payment was due November 1, 2014.  The 4th quarter’s grace period ends 4:30 p.m. on Monday, November 10, 2014.

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.
