Tax Collector's Office
The Tax Collector is responsible for the billing, collection, reporting and enforcement of municipal taxes for the Township of Nutley. As a statutory officer of the State of New Jersey, the Tax Collector is obligated to follow all the State Statutes regarding property tax collection including billing, due dates, interest on delinquent tax payments and tax sale procedures.
Your current tax bill covers the last half of the current year and the first half of the following year. Property taxes are due on February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1. Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt you from paying taxes or the interest due on delinquent taxes. The Township does permit a 10 day grace period. The State of New Jersey does not permit postmark. Taxes must be received in the office on or before the 10th. However, if the 10th falls on a weekend or legal holiday, you have until the next business day to make payment. All payments may be made by cash, check, or money order, e-check, debit, or credit cards. Credit card payment will be accepted until November 15th on current year taxes.
**** Credit cards can be used for payment of taxes until subject to Tax Sale ****
Any open balance as of December 31st of the current year is subject to tax sale. The tax sale list will be available on this web site as well as advertised in the legal section of the Nutley Sun, a weekly paper available on Thursdays.
