– 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.

Notice Regarding Late Payments and Postmark
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
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).
