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

7/6/16

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 2016. It will also include the amounts due for February and May of 2017. Please do not disregard this bill after the August payment. Use this bill to pay the November, 2016 as well as the February and May, 2017 tax payments.

The Quarterly Tax due dates are as follows (unless extended):

Third Quarter 2016- August 1, 2016

Fourth Quarter 2016- November 1, 2016

First Quarter 2017-February 1. 2017

Second Quarter 2017- May 1, 2017

*Please be advised the Third Quarter (August) due date has been extended until August 16, 2016. *

There is a ten (10) day interest-free grace period from the dates above. Payments received after the end of the grace period will be charged interest from the quarterly due date until payment is received by the Tax Collector’s Office. If a due date is extended, there is no grace period past the extended due date, and late payments are charged interest from the original, not the extended, due date.

 

We do not accept post marks.  Payments must be received in our office or paid on line at www.hobokennj.gov/proptaxes to avoid interest.  In addition to interest, balances due as of December 31, 2016, greater than $10,000 will be charged a 6% year-end penalty.

The Tax office is open daily from 9:00am until 4:00pm.

 

Only during quarterly collection periods the office is open extended hours as follows:

 

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

8/09/2016, 11/2/2016, 2/1/2017 & 5/3/2017.

The Tax Office will be open from 8am to 5pm until the 10th .

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 http://www.hobokennj.gov/proptaxes to look up your property tax records.

TAX APPEALS

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

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.
