 Tax Information:

  • The mission of the Tax Collectors Office is to adhere to the responsibilities of billing, collection, reporting and enforcement of property taxes and other municipal charges.

  • As a statutory office of the State of New Jersey, the tax collector is obligated to follow all of the State Statutes regarding property tax collection.

  • Property tax bills are mailed once a year in July with the final 3rd & 4th quarter current year amounts due; and 1st & 2nd prelimnary year quarter amounts due 

  • Tax Collection due dates are: February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1 By resolution The Borough of Haddonfield permits a 10-day grace period. If the tax bills are mailed late, the grace period for the 3rd quarter payment is extended 25 days after the date of mailing. As per NJSA 54:4-66 payments received after the grace period are charged interest retroactive back to the original due date.                                                           

  • The State of New Jersey DOES NOT  allow the Tax Collector to accept postmarks, therefore taxes must be received in our office on or before the close of the 10-day grace period.

  •  NJSA 54:4-64 states Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt you from paying taxes or delinquent interest on taxes.  It is the property owner’s responsibility to ascertain from the proper official (Tax Collector) the amounts due.  If you have lost your bill please call the tax office to obtain the amount due and to request a duplicate copy of your bill.

  • If you receive an “advice only” statement and a mortgage company is NOT responsibly for making your tax payments, you may use this statement to pay your taxes.  Please notify the tax office that you pay your own property taxes and do not have an escrow account.

  • Payments may be made by mail, online or in person. 

  • We also offer the convenience of Direct Debit of your Tax Payments from your Bank Account to a Borough of Haddonfield Bank Account. If you would like to have this service, please complete and return this Direct Withdrawl Form with a VOIDED CHECK from the account you will be using. You can email Megan Giordano at mgiordano@haddonfield-nj.gov the completed form and a copy of the voided check, or send by regular mail to her attention.  There is NO additional charge/fee for this service. The tax transfer date will be the 1st of the month of the Quarter due. Your property tax account must be current to begin this service.

    **If you take advantage of the ACH SERVICE, please remember if you sell your home or no longer wish to have this service active, you must notify our office in writing to remove the bank account information provided.**

  • If you make a payment using bill pay from your bank, please realize that it is not an electronic posting (your bank will mail us a check)  and you must allow 7-10 days for delivery.

  • If you wish a receipt when paying by mail, please include the entire bill and a self-addressed stamped envelope with your payment. 

  • Assessment questions should be directed to the Tax Assessor at 856-429-4700 ext. 227.  Please note that the Tax Collector is responsible for billing and collection of taxes only.

  • It is quite often necessary to return checks that are written incorrectly. These errors can result in delays that may cause interest to be charged for late payments. By following the pointers listed below we hope some of these most common errors can be avoided:
    Ensure the written amount matches the (number) dollar amount! This is the most common error. Your check MUST be made payable to BOROUGH OF HADDONFIELD only. Make sure your check is signed and please check the date! Post dated checks are not acceptable.
