3rd Quarter Property Taxes Due, Grace Period Extended to August 18th

New Assessment Calculated into this Tax Bill 

 

Hamilton residents and property owners are reminded that 3rd Quarter Property Tax Payments are due on August 1, 2016; however due to the mailing date of tax bills, Hamilton's 10-day grace period to avoid interest has been extended to close of the Township business day on Thursday, August 18, 2016, to make 3rd Quarter Property Tax Payments without incurring a late fee. 

 

New Assessment Calculated into this Tax Bill

The Mercer County Board of Taxation ordered Hamilton Township to complete a revaluation process by this year.  This is because New Jersey law mandates that real estate be assessed at 100% of market value and in an equitable manner. 

Earlier this year, each property owner was sent a notice of their new assessment via mail.  However, the new assessment was not yet calculated into property tax bills (that were due in February 2016 and May 2016).

Therefore, this is the first bill in which your new assessment is calculated into your property tax payment.  As a result, you may notice a difference in your property taxes from your prior bills.
