Payment Procedures
To view or make online Tax Payments click here. Payments may also be mailed at or dropped off to Borough Hall. If mailing your payment include your check with the appropriate stub from your Tax Bill. Your cancelled check will be your receipt. Please note you may not post date your check as the Tax Collector cannot accept them.  If you send a post dated check it will be returned.  Please use the current date that you are writing the check. 

Interest Rate for Delinquent Taxes
Taxes are considered delinquent when received after the grace period for the date which they were due. Delinquent taxes are charged interest pursuant to state statute at the rate of 8% for the first $1,500 and 18% for any amount over $1,500 of a delinquency. The rate is an annual rate, but accrues daily. Any payments towards a delinquent account will first be applied towards interest with the balance of the payment applied towards principal. Payments on delinquent accounts may not be made for less than the total interest due on the account.

For the exact amount to pay on a delinquent account, please call the Tax Collection Office.

Tax Sale Information
Taxes are a charge against the property and not a personal debt. In order to enforce the collection of delinquent taxes, the Tax Collector must hold a Tax Sale each year. At the Sale, a lien is sold for the amount of delinquent taxes and water/sewer charges, plus interest and costs of Sale. The Sale is done by public auction.

Prior to the Tax Sale, a list of properties on the Sale is published in the Borough's official newspapers and a notice is sent to the property owner. Once the list of property owners has been provided to the official newspapers for publication, names cannot be removed. This includes those who have remitted payment to the Tax Collectors Office after submittal of public notice, but prior to tax sale. To be removed from the Sale, full payment of the amounts to go to Sale must be made prior to the date of the sale.
