Convenient Online Payment Options for 2nd Quarter Tax Bill

 

We would like to remind residents and property owners that 2nd Quarter Property Tax Payments are due (as of May 1, 2018) and that Hamilton's 10-day grace period allows property owners until the close of the Township business day on Thursday, May 10, 2018, to make 2nd Quarter Property Tax Payments without incurring a late fee.

Notice Regarding Late Payments and Postmark Dates

 

To help avoid any confusion for taxpayers, we would like to remind our community that all 2nd quarter tax payments must be received by the Hamilton Township Tax Collector’s Office by 4 PM on Thursday, May 10, 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 tax and/or 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 tax payments, sewer 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: The Hamilton Township Tax Collector’s Office requires that an Authorization Agreement for Automatic Withdrawal Payments (accessible via HamiltonNJ.com/PayOnline) and a Personalized Voided Check be returned and received at least 2 weeks prior to a payment due date in order process the payment in time.     

 

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).
