  • Please be advised that the State of New Jersey does not allow the Tax Collector to acknowledge postmarks when you mail your tax payment, therefore, taxes must be received in the office on or before the 10th of the month taxes are due.
  • Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt you from paying your taxes or the interest due on delinquent taxes.
  • Tax Collector is not responsible for any tax payment that is lost through the mailing process. If by chance your taxes get lost in the mail, you are still responsible for the tax payment and any interest incurred. You may check the status of your taxes online or call the tax collector to confirm your tax payment has been received.
    Please note: For the convenience of our customers, a drop box is located by the front steps of the Municipal Building.
