When unpaid taxes or any municipal lien, or part thereof, on real property remains in arrears at the end of the prior year, the Tax Collector or other officer charged by law in the municipality with that duty shall enforce the lien by selling the property at tax sale.
All real property assessed and remaining delinquent for the payment of property taxes and interest for the year 2013 will be subject to tax sale on Tuesday, December 9, 2014, 10:00 a.m., Town Hall Meeting Room, 124 Cedar Drive, Colts Neck, NJ 07722.
Payment Due Date: October 17, 2014 – To avoid additional penalties, costs and publication of name, address, and outstanding tax balance in the Asbury Park Press every week for four weeks prior to tax sale, property owners must pay all 2013 principle and interest and 2014 interest. Please note: Once the tax sale listing appears in the Asbury Park Press, subsequent publications cannot be revised reflecting tax payment.
To expedite payment, contact the Tax Collector’s Office at Town Hall (732-462-5470, x 2) for a quote of the entire 2013 delinquency including the current interest for 2014 unpaid taxes. Payments are accepted in cash, money order, or certified check payable to the Township of Colts Neck.
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 was due August 1, 2014. The 3rd quarter’s grace period ended 4:30 p.m. on Monday, August 11, 2014.
