Property Taxes 

Property taxes are due on: 

  • February 1st
  • May 1st
  • August 1st
  • November 1st

There is a 10-day grace period. The State of New Jersey does not allow us to use the postmark as proof. Your payment must be received in our office on or before the 10th of each month when taxes are due. If the 10th falls on a weekend or legal holiday, you have until the next day to make your payment. Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse you from paying taxes or interest on delinquent taxes.

All interest, penalties and fees are applied first, and the remaining balance will be applied to the principal.

Payment

You can pay with check, credit card or debit card or have the payment deducted from your bank account through our online payment system. Banks charge a fee for this service, so check the amount your are being charged before you authorize the payment. These convenience fees are charged by the company processing your electronic payments, and are not paid to nor shared with Franklin Township.
