Please write your telephone number and your Property I.D. Number on your check for reference. Payment will be recorded on the date received - not the date it is mailed or the date the check is written.

Checks are accepted only as a conditional payment. If not honored by bank, tax is unpaid and subject to penalties and/or interest. The Township will assess a $25.00 fee each time a check is returned to us unpaid. Future payments will be applied to outstanding returned check charges prior to crediting your tax bill.
