The Waterford Township Tax Bill includes amounts due for the general County tax, County Open Space tax, the Local School District tax, as well as the Local Municipal Purpose tax.
Tax bills are mailed in either June or July, once the Waterford Township tax rate has been confirmed by the County.
February 1st, May 1st, August 1st, and November 1st. There is a ten (10) calendar day grace period.
Interest will be charged at the rate of 8% on the first $1,500.00 of delinquency and 18% on any amount of delinquency over $1,500.00 until such time as the taxes are paid current. Interest is charged back to billing date or last payment date, whichever occurs later. New Jersey Statutes Annotated 54:4-67, requires us to take delinquent interest first, with the balance of the payment applied to oldest outstanding taxes.
Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the owner from paying property taxes or delinquent interest on late payments per New Jersey Statutes Annotated 54:4-64. Please contact the Tax Collector's Office if you need a copy of your Tax Bill.
When mailing your payments, you must include your entire tax bill along with a self addressed stamped envelope in order to have a receipt mailed back to you.
We are no longer able to accept credit card payments in our office and we do not take any form of payment over the phone.
