Property Taxes

 

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: 

First quarter taxes are due Thursday, February 1, 2024.  Because February 10 falls on Saturday, the grace period has been extended to the end of business day on Monday, February 12.  First quarter payments received after February 12 will be charged interest from February 1.  Please note that all drop box payments will be considered next business day.  All Monday drop box payments will be considered Tuesday and therefore will be charged interest.

Your tax bill may be viewed and paid through the Make a Payment page. There is a drop box located in front of the municipal building at 100 Community Drive. Mailed checks must reach the township by the end of grace period to be considered on time. Please do not place any cash in the drop box.

Taxes are paid at the tax collector’s office or by online payment. Tax bills are payable quarterly typically on the 1st day of February, May, August and November, after which date they are delinquent and subject to interest. Interest will typically be charged on all payments made more than ten (10) days after the due date (see above exception of delay on our part).

A payment will not be applied towards an account until it is in physical possession of the Township, regardless of postmarked date. If mailing your payment, allow sufficient time for the mail to arrive prior to end of grace period to avoid interest charges.

Furthermore, since the Township of Montgomery must deposit all checks that are received within 48 hours of receipt as required by New Jersey State Statute, the Township cannot hold any checks for a period of time; hence, the Township cannot accept postdated checks. Thank you for your understanding.

Unpaid taxes remaining by the 1st day of February, May, August or November are subject to interest at the rate of 8% per annum up to $1500.00 and 18% per annum over $1500.00. Once the 18% per annum has been established, it will remain at 18% until the outstanding amount is zero. Montgomery Township provides a 10 day grace period for payment of taxes. However, if the 10 day grace period is exceeded, the interest accrues from the 1st of the month that the payment is due. A penalty of 6% will be charged on any delinquency in excess of $10,000.00 if not paid by the end of the fiscal year.

Tax Deductions:

Senior citizen and veteran’s deductions require an application from the Tax Assessor’s office.

For duplicate copies of your tax or sewer bill, contact the Tax Collector:

  • If you are a new homeowner and did not receive your bill at the closing
  • If you pay off your mortgage and will be paying your own taxes and do not have your copy of the bill
  • If for any reason you do not have a copy of your tax or sewer bill.
