REMINDER – Sewer Payments Due – Online Payment Options Available

First-half Sewer Utility payments for Hamilton residents and property owners are due on March 1, 2018; however,  as a reminder, Hamilton’s 10-day grace period to avoid interest gives property owners to the close of the Township business day on Monday, March 12, 2018, to make this sewer utility payment without incurring a late fee. 

After the close of the Township business day on Monday, March 12, 2018, any first-half late payments for the current bill will be subject to interest charges dating back to the actual due date of March 1, 2018.

Unlike quarterly property tax payments, Hamilton residents and property owners are reminded that Sewer Utility payments are NOT automatically paid through escrow accounts (used for mortgage payments) in nearly all cases.  

As a reminder, sewer bills were mailed in September of 2017.  For any residents who may be unable to locate their bills, they can access payment information (including the amount owed) at

Notice Regarding Late Payments and Postmark Dates

To help avoid any confusion for residents, we would like to remind our community that all first half sewer payments must be received by the Hamilton Township Tax Collector’s Office by 4 PM on Monday, March 12, 2018, in order to avoid late payment fees.  Therefore, please note that the Tax Collector’s Office will NOT accept the ‘Postmark Date’ as the date of receipt of payment for sewer payments and will NOT allow for exceptions based upon postal delivery factors that are beyond the control of the Tax Collector’s Office.  If a taxpayer is concerned that their payment may not be received in time through postal delivery methods, they should strongly consider another payment method to avoid possible late fee charges.


Are Automatic Withdrawal Payments Right for You?

Through the above link, residents can also find out about automatic withdrawal payment options, which can be set up for either future sewer payments, tax payments, or for both.  For some residents, this is a helpful way to avoid forgetting to make mid-year payments. Currently, there is no transaction fee associated with this payment option.

Please Note: It is currently too late to make the current first-half Sewer Utility Payment with an automatic withdrawal payment if you are not already signed up for this option.


Are You a New Resident or Moved to a New Home?

If you moved into a new home within the past year, it may be possible that your tax or sewer bill (each of which is mailed once a year and includes separate portions for each payment due over the course of that 12 month period) was received by the prior property owner.  You can use our online payment system to check on the status of tax and sewer payments over the past 12 month period (to make sure that there are not any outstanding or missed payments).
