Billing & Payments
Please be advised that the State of New Jersey does not allow the collector to acknowledge postmarks as payment dates when sending your payment, either via USPS, FEDEX, UPS, through your bank online, etc. Your payments must be received in the collector’s office on or before the 10th of the month in which it is due. The collector is not responsible for any payments lost through the mailing process. If your payment is lost in the mail, you are still responsible for the payment and any interest incurred. Failure to receive a bill does not exempt you from paying your bills or interest due on any delinquencies. If you feel you have not received your bill, it is your responsibility to check the status of your account. You can check the status of your account online or by calling the collector.
Please note: For the convenience of our customers, a drop-box is located by the front steps of the Municipal Building.

The payment or non-payment of any tax and/or utility bills are the sole responsibility of the property owner, even if a tenant occupies the property.
