Tax Payment Information

Property Taxes are due quarterly on February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1.

PLEASE DO NOT MAIL POST-DATED CHECKS. ALL CHECKS RECEIVED THROUGH OUR OFFICE MUST BE DEPOSITED WITHIN 48 HOURS.

Please be advised according to N.J.S.A. 54.4-64:"The validity of any Tax Assessment, or the time at which it shall be payable, shall not be affected by the failure of a taxpayer to receive a bill, but every taxpayer is put upon notice to ascertain from the proper official of the taxing district the amount which may be due for taxes or assessments against him or his property." 

Online Payments

For your convenience the Borough provides you with the option to make tax payments online using our WIPP portal. This portal has recently been updated and allows you the option to register as a user and create an account where you can save your accounts, store payment methods, schedule payments and print your tax bill online.
