General Information for Taxpayers
Any questions concerning your assessments should be directed to the Tax Assessor. The Collector is responsible for the billing and collection of taxes only.
Tax Payment Grace Period
Taxes are due quarterly (February, May, August and November). An owner has until the 10th of the month to make payment. Payments received after the 10-day grace period will be considered delinquent and subject to interest. Payments requiring a receipt must be accompanied by the entire tax bill with a self-addressed postage paid envelope. Otherwise, detach the appropriate stub and mail with your check, the canceled check will be your receipt. Checks should be made payable to “Oldmans Township.” Taxpayers can pay cash, check or money order.
Taxes are a charge against the property and not a personal debt. In order to enforce collection of delinquent taxes, the Tax Collector must hold a Tax Sale each year. At the sale, a lien is sold for the amount of delinquent taxes or other municipal charges, plus interest and Costs of Sale. The sale is done by public auction.
Cost of Sale: When advertising begins, additional fees are assessed for the cost of holding the sale, as well as advertising costs. The minimum is $15.00, the maximum is $100.00, based on 2% of the total years tax and interest. The costs are added to the lien. Up to two mailings of notice may replace two publications, and a fee of $25.00 may be charged per mailing. The mailings need not be certified. These costs are also added to the lien.
Prior to the Tax Sale, a list of properties on the Sale is published in the South Jersey Times and a notice is sent to the property owner. Once the list of property owners has been provided to South Jersey Times for publication, names cannot be removed. The includes those who have remitted payment to the Tax Collectors Office after submittal of public notice, but prior to tax sale. To be removed from the Sale, full payment of the amounts to go to Sale must be made prior to the date of the Sale.
