Overview

The Tax Collector is responsible for the receipt and collection of all current and delinquent taxes, assessments and fees which are remitted to the Finance Department.

Municipal taxes are only a portion of a property taxpayer's obligation. Bergen County government and the Local Public School District develop and adopt their own budgets to be funded by taxes.  However, New Jersey's fiscal laws require the municipal government serve as a billing and collection agency for these entities.

Real property taxes are due on February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1. There is a ten calendar day grace period. Any real property tax payments received after the 10th calendar day of the month will be considered late and interest will be charged. The interest rate for late payment  is 8% on the first $1,500.00 and 18% on the amount over $1,500.00. A year end penalty is charged at 6% on all delinquent balances (including interest) in excess of $10,000 not received by December 31. The tax bill provides additional information.

New Jersey Law (NJS 54:5 et seq.) requires all prior year delinquent taxes and municipal charges be sold at an annual Tax Sale. The date for the sale of 2004 delinquencies will be June 17, 2004 at 11:00 am in the Municipal Council Chambers. This sale will include all 2003 taxes and municipal charges considered delinquent and related charges as accrued. The tax sale list will be published in The Observer once a sale date has been determined. Affected property owners, mortgage companies and all interested parties will be notified by mail.

To avoid publication of a property owner's name and address, all 2003 delinquent municipal charges and all accrued interest and penalties must be received. A separate check must be received for each delinquent charge.
