Direct Debit Application

Completed Authorization Agreement forms must be received by the 15th of the month preceding the due date. The withdrawal date will be on or around the fourth of the month. Your account must be current to begin this service. Please note that separate authorization agreements must be completed each property.

Remittances requiring a receipt must be accompanied by the entire tax bill and a self-addressed stamped envelope. Otherwise, detach the appropriate stub and mail with your check. The cancelled check will be your receipt. 

Delinquent Interest Charges
Taxes remaining unpaid by the due date are subject to interest at the rate of 8% per annum up to $1,500.00 and 18% per annum over $1,500.00. The 18% interest rate will remain in effect until the account is paid current. 

Annual Billing
Tax Bills are mailed once a year, in late June or early July. The bill represents the quarterly payment for the final two quarters of the current year and the first two quarters of the coming year. The payments for the first two quarters of the coming year (Preliminary) are based on one half of the previous year’s taxes. When the bill for the second half taxes (Final) is rendered, the tax rate has been established and the total year’s tax is fixed. The preliminary amount is deducted and the remainder becomes your second half taxes. 

Added Assessment Bills
Added Assessment tax bills for new construction or recently completed improvements are mailed in October. This bill is in addition to the annual bill. Payments on added assessment tax bills are due November 1st. February 1st, and May 1st. In the succeeding tax year, the entire assessment should be combined as one billing. 

Additional Billing Information
Contact the Tax Collector’s office if you do not receive or misplace your tax bill. Taxes or assessments are valid whether or not the taxpayer receives a bill. New Jersey statutes indicate that the taxpayer is “put on notice to ascertain from the proper official the amount of their tax or assessment liabilities”.

Property taxes are assessed on the property; not the property owner.

New property owners should receive a current tax bill from the previous owner at settlement. When this office receives the deed from Burlington County Clerk’s Office, a new bill will be sent automatically. Since the recording of the deed may take up to six to eight weeks and if you need to make a payment, please feel free to contact this office for a bill prior to the recording of the deed. If a bill is prepared prior to the recording of the deed, the name will be listed as “current owner”.

If your mortgage has been recently satisfied, you may use the advice copy of the annual bill mailed late June or early July. If you have misplaced your advice copy, contact the office and we will prepare a duplicate.

Requests for changes in mailing addresses or mortgage company information must be done in writing.
