Tax Payment Guidelines

Please make payment to the Borough of West Long Branch by check or cash.  You can now look up and pay your taxes online.

Taxes are due on the 1st day of February, May, August, and November.  Interest is waived if payment is received by the close of business on the last day of the grace period (generally the 10th day of the month in which taxes are due).

U.S. Mail postmark dates are not an indication of receipt by the Tax Office.

If payments are received late, interest is calculated from the 1st day of the month until the day payment is received by the Tax Office.  Late payments will first be applied to interest due, then to principle.

Interest is calculated at 8% annually on the first $1,500 delinquent, then 18% annually for any amount over $1,500 until the account is brought current.

Postdated checks are not accepted and will be returned to you, which may cause a delinquency on your account.

Thank you for your cooperation.  If you have any questions, please contact me.
