Tax Collection

Taxes are payable quarterly on the first day of February, May, August and November after which dates they are delinquent and subject to interest. There is a 10-calendar day grace period. Any questions concerning your assessment should be directed to the Tax Assessor, John Gillooly (732) 741-4200, x110. The Collector is responsible for the billing and collection of taxes only. The entire tax bill with a self-addressed stamped envelope must accompany remittances requiring receipt. Otherwise, detach the appropriate stub and mail with your check; the cancelled check will be your receipt. Any inquires about Sewer billing should be made to The Two River Water Reclamation Authority at (732) 229-8578.
