"Third quarter tax bills have not been mailed out due to the delay in the passing of the Borough budget. The Borough expects to receive funds from the federal and state governments as tax relief resulting from the damages incurred from Superstorm Sandy.
These funds would impact the amount of taxes we would need to collect; however, the numbers were not received in time for us to mail out third quarter bills at the usual time."
The statement continues, "The bills will be due 25 days from the date we mail them and there will be a message on the bill to that effect.
Unfortunately, this will make the third quarter due very close to the fourth quarter, which is due November 1. If residents wish to avoid the necessity of paying two quarters so close together, they may make an estimated third quarter payment and only have to pay the difference, when the bill is actually received.
If further information is required, please contact the Tax Collector’s office at 732-892-3434."
Borough Administrator David Maffei said on Friday that the council hopes to introduce the budget at the meeting on Tuesday, August 20, with the public hearing and final adoption on September 17, but that schedule is subject to change.
He said the Borough cannot mail out tax bills until after budget adoption.
