Township to Issue Estimated Tax Bills

The Township has not yet received all the necessary information to issue final 2014 tax bills, and will be issuing estimated bills for the August 1, 2014 third quarter tax payment. By mailing estimated bills, the Township will avoid unnecessary interest costs associated with issuing tax anticipation notes to provide funds for cash flow purposes. Estimated tax bills are expected to be mailed during the first week of June.

The third quarter estimated tax bill is the only bill that will be issued for the August 1, 2014 payment. To avoid interest charges, all August payments must be received on or before August 11, 2014.

Tax bills for the November 1, 2014, February 1, 2015 and May 1, 2015 tax quarters will be adjusted, if necessary, and mailed following certification of the final 2014 tax rate by the Essex County Board of Taxation.

Tax payments can be made on-line using a credit card, via direct ACH withdrawal, by mail or in person either at the tax office located at 357 South Livingston Avenue, or through the drop box located in the rear parking lot of the municipal building.
