The Tax Collector is charged with the responsibility for  collecting all taxes and assessments both current and delinquent. By State law, the Colts Neck Tax Office  is a billing and collection agency for  municipal,  County and school districts  (Colts Neck Township and Freehold Regional School Districts).

Tax bills are mailed annually, usually during the first two weeks of July.  If you do not receive your annual tax bill by July 31st, contact the Tax Office.  Taxpayers are urged to read all  information on both sides of the tax bill.  According to  State law, failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt a property owner from payment of taxes.

Taxes are due quarterly, February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1.  The Mayor and Township Committee have granted a ten-day grace period for payment to the 10th of the month, after which interest accrues from the first day payment is due.  For example,  first quarter taxes are due February 1.  If payment is received after February 10, interest is calculated  retroactive to February 1.

Payment Options:

  • In Person:  Cash, checks and money order payments accepted.  Office hours:  weekdays, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Drop Box:  A drop box is located at the entrance to Town Hall for after hours tax payments made by check or money order made payable to “Township of Colts Neck”.  Please include your current tax payment stub.  Payment will be processed as of the next business day.  If you would like a receipt, include your entire bill and a stamped, self-addressed stamped envelope.  Your bill will be validated and returned via USPS mail.
  • By Mail:  Make check payable to “Township of Colts Neck”, and mail to the Tax Office at 124 Cedar Drive, together with the current tax payment stub.  If you would like a receipt, include your entire bill and a stamped, self-addressed stamped envelope.  Your bill will be validated and returned via USPS mail.
