In order to accommodate taxpayers affected by Hurricane Sandy, the Tax Collector has extended the grace period to November 20, 2012.
Please be advised that postmarks are not accepted in accordance with the State of New Jersey tax laws, therefore the payment must be received by November 20, 2012.
We are also asking taxpayers, if possible, to please pay taxes online or by mail due to the damage sustained to the Tax Collection office located on the first floor of City Hall. Limited operations are available on the 2nd floor of City Hall at 861 Asbury Ave. from 8:45 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Monday thru Friday.
Taxes can be paid on line by visiting www.ocnj.us/tax. If you are using the bill pay feature with your bank, please allow sufficient time, 7-10 days, for your payment to reach us. The Tax Collection web site is sent directly to our bank account whereas using the bill pay feature of your own bank will require a check to be sent to this office.
The new location for the Tax Collection office will be posted once available. Our phone number is 609-525-9379. City Hall Offices will be closed November 12, 2012.
