UPDATE: First quarter taxes are now past due. Please be advised that tax bills unpaid after February 12, 2013, incur interest from February 1, 2013.
If you still need to pay your taxes, please call the Tax Collector's Office to confirm the amount owed (tax+interest) before making a payment.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Please be advised that First Quarter Taxes are due Friday, February 1, 2013.
For this quarter only, the usual 10 day grace period has been extended: Residents have until Tuesday, February 12, 2013 to pay their taxes without penalty. Tax bills which remain unpaid after February 12, 2013, will incur interest from February 1, 2013.
Please allow ample time for mailing and check with your banking institution to ensure that your payment will be IN OFFICE by Tuesday, February 12, 2013, as we cannot make exceptions for payments still en route on that date.
If using online checking, please include your block and lot number in the memo field.
The Tax Collector's Office, located in Borough Hall at 1 Harding Plaza in Glen Rock is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
As usual, the Tax Collector's Office will remain open until 7 pm for the first three days of tax collection, February 1, 4, and 5.
Please note that Borough Offices (including the Tax Collector’s Office) will be closed on Monday, February 11, 2013, in observance of Lincoln’s birthday.
Most eligible homeowners will receive their 2011 Homestead Benefit as a credit applied to their May 2013 property tax bills, NOT their First Quarter tax bills. These residents will each receive a letter in April advising them of any adjustments.
