Delran Township 2020 2nd Quarter tax grace period to be extended to June 1st

Delran Township 2020 2nd Quarter Tax Grace Period to be Extended to June 1st

On May 5th, Township Council passed a Resolution to extend the grace period for payment of the May 1st quarterly property taxes to June 1st. The move comes after Governor Murphy issued an executive order granting municipalities the authority to extend the grace period for the 2020 2nd quarter due on May 1 only.

The executive order does not change the due date of May 1st, but instead extends the grace period for payment to June 1. This allows property owners to make payments to the Tax Collector on or before June 1 without accruing interest or penalties.

Payments received after June 1st will accrue interest from the statutory due date of May 1st.

The Township is encouraging residents that are able to make their payments now to please do so, as these quarterly payments are utilized to keep vital services in the Township running – including Police, Fire, trash and public works, as well as fund our teachers and schools.

2020 Census Information

Census 2020 has started. The official US Census Day is April 1st. Everyone should already have received their mailed invitation to respond to the Census. For the first time, you can RESPOND ONLINE, BY PHONE, OR BY MAIL, all without leaving the safety of your own home.

It’s very important for New Jersey and Delran Township that every resident gets counted, regardless of age or immigration status. Our Congressional representation depends on it. Over $1 trillion in Federal funding is allocated nationally based wholly or in part on Census counts, including almost $46 billion for New Jersey in FY2017, including about $12 billion for Medicare and Medicaid, $1.6 billion for transportation, and more than $350 million for school breakfast and lunch programs. In these challenging times, it is especially true that continued funding for healthcare, health insurance, and emergency response resources is critical. Let’s make sure that New Jersey gets its fair share by achieving a complete count of all our residents.

You can fill out the Census online or by phone in any of 14 languages (English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Korean, Russian, Arabic, Tagalog, Polish, French, Haitian Creole, Portuguese, Japanese) and TTY/TDD by phone.
