Tax Collector

The Tax Collector’s office is responsible for billing and collecting property taxes. The office maintains tax records, provides tax information to the public, and assists eligible residents in applying for property tax relief programs offered by the state. The Tax Assessor is responsible for establishing your taxable value (assessment) of your property. Questions regarding your assessment should be directed to the assessor's office.

Tax Payment Due Dates 

Property taxes are billed once a year in either late July or early August and contain 4 quarterly tax payment coupons.
Property taxes are due on the first of February, May, August, and November.
By resolution, Haddonfield permits a 10-day grace period for payments. If the tax bills are mailed late, the grace period for the 3rd quarter payment only is extended to 25 days from the date of mailing. Please note that this does not change the statutory due date of August 1st. When the 10th day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, the last day of the grace period is extended to the following business day.  

As per NJSA 54:4-66, payments received after the grace period are charged interest back to the original due date.
Interest is charged at the rate of 8% per annum on the first $1,500 of the delinquency and 18% per annum on any amount in excess of $1,500. 
If delinquencies in excess of $10,000 are not paid by the end of the year, there is a 6% year-end penalty. 

Taxes must be received in our office by the end of the grace period. As per the State of New Jersey, Postmarks are not acceptable.

Please note when writing your check that it is made out to the Borough of Haddonfield, the written amount matches the numeric number, and the check is signed and dated properly (not postdated).

If you receive an "Advice Only" tax bill but do not have a mortgage company, please notify the tax office and use that bill to pay your taxes.

Payments may be made by mail, online, in person, or by your bank's bill pay system. If you make a payment using your bank's bill pay system, a physical check is mailed to our office, and you should allow 7-10 days for delivery. Postdated checks are not acceptable. There is also a black box out front of Borough Hall where tax payments may be placed. The Tax Office can only accept cash or checks for payments.

The Borough of Haddonfield also offers the convenience of Direct Withdrawal of your tax payments.  If you wish to use this service, please complete and return this form, "Direct Withdrawal Authorization" to the tax office.  All quarterly payments will be processed on the due dates. It is crucial to note that you must notify the tax office if you sell your home or no longer wish to use this service.

NJSA 54:4-64 states that failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt you from paying taxes or interest on the taxes. It is the homeowner's responsibility to contact the Tax Collector's office to ascertain the amount due.
