The Bayonne Tax Collector’s Office announced that second quarter property tax payments are due on May 10. The nominal legal due date is May 1, which is not a business day.
The city council authorized a grace period through the close of business on May 10. Payments made by that date will avoid a late fee. Property owners can pay their taxes by mail or in person at City Hall, 630 Avenue C, at Bayonne branches of BCB Community Bank, or through bayonnenj.org.
Late payments will incur charges
By state law, quarterly payments received after the close of business on May 10 will incur interest charges dating back to May 1, the nominal, legal due date for the second quarter.
In-person payments on May 10 should be made before the close of business at 4:30 p.m. Taxpayers can drop off various payments in boxes inside the two sets of front doors at City Hall. Tax payments should be placed in the box on the lef-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.
