Tax deadline now June 1
During their meeting on Tuesday, May 12, the Borough commissioners changed the date for payment of property taxes without penalty from May 31 (a Sunday) to Monday, June 1.
The regular due date for second quarter tax payments was May 1. The commissioners extended the usual grace period to the end of the month, at 0% interest, provided payment is received on or before May 31, 2020. That “drop dead” date is now June 1.
The commissioners’ action recognizes the financial difficulties some residents are experiencing, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Property taxes that are not paid by June 1, 2020 will be subject to interest at the rate of 8% per annum up to $1,500 owed and 18% per annum over $1,500, calculated from the due date (May 1) until the date the payment is actually received.
Although the Borough Hall is closed to the general public, payments can still be made “in person” by placing them in the black mailbox in front of the building. Place the tax bill and check in an envelope marked “Tax Office.” The box is emptied daily.
Paying by mail? The address is 242 Kings Highway E, Haddonfield NJ 08033.
