Municipal taxes are only a portion of a property taxpayer’s obligation.  Bergen County Government and the Local Public School District develop and adopt their own budgets to be funded by taxes.  However, New Jersey’s fiscal laws require the municipal government serve as a billing and collection agency for these entities.

Real property taxes are due on February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1.  There is a ten calendar day grace period.  Any real property tax payments received after the 10th calendar day of the month will be considered late and interest will be charged.   The interest rate for late payment is 8% on the first $1500.00 and 18% on the amount over $1500.00.  A year end penalty is charged at 6% on all delinquent balances (including interest) in excess of $10,000 not received by December 31.  The tax bill provides additional information.

New Jersey Law (NJS 54:5 et seq.) requires all prior year delinquent taxes and municipal charges be sold at an annual Tax Sale.  Once a date of sale has been set, it will be held at the Borough of Hasbrouck Heights Municipal Building, 320 Boulevard.  This sale will include taxes and municipal charges considered delinquent and related charges as accrued.  The tax sale list will be published in The Record once a sale date had been determined.  Affected property owners, mortgage companies and all interested parties will be notified by registered mail.

To avoid publication of a property owner’s name and address, all prior year delinquent municipal charges and all accrued interest and penalties must be received.
