Tax Collector, Dana Mooney, CTC 973-347-0159 ext.13
The Tax Collector is responsible to collect all property taxes. Upon receipt of the Borough’s tax assessments and certified tax rate, tax bills are calculated and mailed to property owners, authorized banks and mortgage companies. When property taxes are not paid on a timely basis, the Tax Collector is responsible for delinquent billing and schedules an annual Tax Sale to collect delinquent taxes. The Tax Collector strives to obtain a high collection rate to minimize a negative budgetary impact on the Borough’s financial expenses. The Tax Collector provides written reports to both the governing body and the State of New Jersey.
The Division of Taxation has updated their website to reflect the following information regarding the Current Year (2011) Homestead Benefit Program.
Most eligible homeowners will receive their 2011 homestead benefit as a credit applied to property tax bills in August 2013. Those homeowners who either sold their home prior to filing the homestead benefit application, or whose principal residence was a unit in a co-op or continuing care retirement community will be issued a benefit in the form of a check or direct deposit in August 2013. Tenants will not receive a 2011 rebate. The deadline for filing 2011 applications was December 14, 2012.
