It's time to pay your property taxes.

The Bayonne Tax Collector’s Office announced that first quarter property tax payments are due on Wednesday, February 10.

The nominal legal due date for the tax bills was Monday, February 1. However, the City Council authorized a grace period through the close of business on Wednesday, February 10.

Payments made by that date will avoid a late fee. Property owners may pay their taxes by mail or in person at City Hall at 630 Avenue C, at Bayonne branches of BCB Community Bank, or through the City of Bayonne website, www.bayonnenj.org.

By state law, quarterly payments received after the close of business on Wednesday, February 10, will incur interest charges dating back to Monday, February 1, the nominal, legal due date for the first quarter. For anyone making payments in person on February 10, the Tax Collector’s Office strongly recommends paying in person at City Hall before the close of business that day at 4:30 p.m.

There are boxes inside the two sets of front doors at City Hall where taxpayers can drop off various payments. Drop tax payments in the tax box, which is on the left-hand side between the two sets of doors.

Those who handle their property taxes through their monthly mortgage payments should have received advice copies of the property tax bills in the most recent tax mailing. They should continue paying their property taxes through their mortgages.
