PAYING OFF A PROPERTY MORTGAGE?  Please notify the Tax Collector if you pay off a mortgage so that all future correspondence and property tax payment bills are mailed to the correct address and not to the mortgage company.  The mortgage company will not notify the municipality. 

Tax bills are mailed once per year. Property owners will receive either a tax bill, to be used when making a quarterly tax payment, or a tax bill advice copy, provided to the property owner when a mortgage company makes the quarterly tax payments.  The tax bill advice copy is to be used by the property owner once the mortgage has been satisfied. 

NEW JERSEY PROPERTY TAX RELIEF PROGRAMS   Please visit http://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/   to learn more about New Jersey's Homestead Rebate Program, the Property Tax Reimbursement/Senior Freeze Program, the Property Tax Credit Program, and the Veteran and Senior Citizen Deduction Programs. Forms and applications for each of these property tax relief programs are available at the Tax Collectors office.

Office hours:  Fridays 9:30am to 11:30am and by appointment  

The assessor is responsible for the fair assessment of all real property within the municipality in order that the tax burden may be distributed equally.

An annual Tax List is prepared by the assessor and filed with the Morris County Board of Taxation. To produce this list the assessor must identify and value each property as well as maintain an accurate record of property ownership.

The assessor also administers numerous programs required by New Jersey State Statute including tax exemptions to qualified parties, sales ratio study for county equalized tax purposes, farmland assessment and annual assessment notification.

Please do not hesitate to call the office if you have any questions or concerns regarding your assessed value or any of the programs we administer.
