As the Tax Collector, one of the main functions of the department is billing and collecting all property taxes within the City.

Attention All Taxpayers:

The City of Hoboken taxes are being billed on a Calendar Year Schedule.

The Tax Office will send One Tax Bill that shows (4) Quarters and the due dates.

The tax bill you receive will show the amounts due for August and November of 2013. It will also include the amounts due for February and May of 2014. Please do not disregard this bill after the August payment. Use this bill to pay the November, 2013, February, 2014 and May, 2014.

The Quarterly Tax due dates are as follow:

  • Third Quarter - August 1st – August 12th,   2013
  • Fourth Quarter - November 1st-12th 2013
  • First Quarter - February 1st-10th 2014
  • Second Quarter - May 1st-12th 2014

Payments received after the due dates will be charged interest from the first of each quarterly due date until payment is received by the Tax Collector’s Office.

We do not accept post marks.

The Tax Collector’s Office will be open from 8am to 6pm on the following nights:

  • 8/07/2013
  • 11/6/2013
  • 2/5/2014
  • 5/7/2014

The Tax Office will be open from 8am to 5pm the first 10 business days of each quarter.

Please read the back of your tax bill for more tax information.

If you move or want your tax bill sent to another address please put your request in writing and send to the Tax Assessor’s Office or e-mail the information to: assessor@hobokennj.org.

Update

The property tax bill shows a separate line item showing the minimum required appropriation for the Hoboken Public Library as a separate tax levy pursuant to a recently enacted State law (P.L. 2011, c.38). The municipal tax levy was reduced by the same amount as the new library tax levy. This change does not result in a property tax increase and is to help you better understand the cost of library services reflected in your tax bill.

You can also visit www.hobokennj.org/proptaxes to look up your property tax records.

Tax Appeals

The Procedure in the Tax Collector’s Office for processing County Board Judgments:

The adjustment to the levy is applied to the fourth quarter taxes and if there is a balance, the third quarter taxes. Please be advised the levy adjustment cannot be calculated or applied until there is a certified tax rate.  After the November tax payments are credited to all the tax accounts the tax office will review each account with a Hudson County Judgment and refund by resolution the overpayments due to Tax Court Judgments. The overpayments will be refunded to the petitioner or the attorney who represented the petitioner.

An adjustment will also be reflected on the first and second quarters for the following year on the same tax bill. After the adjustment is applied to the tax account a revised bill will be sent to the owner of property and if the case may be the mortgage company of record.

Added Assessment/Omitted Tax Bills

Added Assessment and Omitted Tax Bills are for properties that have made improvements enhancing the value of the property.

The bills are mailed in October and are due November 1st. -10th (with an extension). Payments received after November 10th will be assessed interest from November 1st, until payment is received by the tax office.

Note: Contact the Tax Collector’s Office for a Redemption Statement on a lien before making payment. The figures on the website are not accurate. Payments for liens are only accepted by certified check, cash or money orders.
