Tax Collection Department
The Tax Collector is responsible for the collection of real estate taxes, collection of assessment for local improvements, official searches for municipal liens, and collection of other municipal charges. The office is also responsible for the collection of payment for municipal utilities charges (water and/or sewer fees). For questions regarding municipal utilities, please contact the Utility Department at 973-208-6144.
Selling Your Property
As stated on the tax bill, when there is a change of ownership, the tax bill is to be forwarded to the new owner(s) or their paying agent. If you sell your property, please give your bill to your attorney or bring the bill to the closing. If you were eligible for a Homestead Benefit Credit, be sure to inform your lawyer, if you answered yes to question 9 on the application. Your lawyer needs to take the amount of the benefit into consideration at the closing as the benefit stays with the property not with the owner. All questions pertaining to the calculations of this credit shall be directed to the New Jersey Division of Taxation at 1-888-238-1233.
