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.
