The Tax Collector is responsible for billing, collecting, reporting and enforcing the $23.5 million total tax levy which is comprised of schools, county, library and municipal tax levies as well as delinquent taxes.

Due Dates:  Property taxes are due quarterly on Feb 1, May 1, Aug 1, and Nov 1.  A ten-day grace period to the 10th of the month is allowed by resolution of the Mayor and Council after which interest is charged from the first day of the month in which payments are due.  If the 10th falls on a weekend or holiday, the grace period extends to the first business day following the weekend.

Delinquencies: Late payments are charged interest at a rate of 8% on the first $1,500 of the delinquency and 18% on the balance. 

Payments/ Receipts: Your taxes are only considered paid when the payment is received in the tax office.  Postmark is not accepted.  Please include the quarterly payment stub from your tax bill with your payment. Your cancelled check is your receipt. If you would like your bill receipted, please send the entire tax bill with your check and a return self-addressed stamped envelope and it will be mailed back to you.

If you are writing a check to pay your taxes, please make check payable to: Borough of Haworth and mail to 300 Haworth Ave    OR   save postage and use the drop box at the back entrance to Borough Hall.  

Taxpayers are urged to read all of the information contained on the front and the back of their tax bills.  Please note that according to New Jersey State Law (N.J.S.A. 54:4-64,) “The validity of any tax or assessment, or the time at which it shall be payable, shall NOT be affected by the failure of a taxpayer to receive a tax bill, but every taxpayer is put on notice to ascertain from the proper official of the taxing district the amount which may be due for taxes and assessments.”    

For new homeowners…welcome to Haworth! Please contact the Tax office if you did not receive a copy of the tax bill at closing.  Once you own the property, it is your responsibility (by law) to ascertain when taxes are due and the amount.

Post-Dated Checks: By statute, our office is required to deposit payments as soon as they are received and we cannot accept “post-dated” checks. Therefore, please date your check the day you write it out, just as you would if you were paying in person.
