Tax Payment Policies
Tax bills will be mailed in July once the Franklin Township tax rate has been established. The tax bill has the amounts due for the 3rd Quarter due August 1st, the 4th Quarter due November 1st of the current year and the preliminary billing for the next year being the 1st Quarter due February 1st and the 2nd Quarter due May 1st.
February 1st, May 1st, August 1st, and November 1st. There is a grace period that extends to the 10th day of the month in which the taxes are due.
Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the owner from paying property taxes or delinquent interest on late payments per New Jersey Statutes Annotated 54:4-64. Please contact the Tax Collector's Office if you need a copy of your tax bill.

Interest will be charged at the rate of 8% on the first $1,500.00 of delinquency and 18% on any amount of delinquency over $1,500.00 until such time as the taxes are paid current. Per New Jersey Statutes Annotated 54:4-67, delinquent interest is taken first and the balance of the payment is applied to taxes.
The Tax Collector's Office will accept partial payments on current year taxes providing there is no municipal tax lien on the property and such payment covers at least the amount of any interest due on the account. Partial payments will not keep a property from tax sale if it is subject to same.
