On Tuesday, April 28, Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order No. 130 which allows municipalities to extend the grace period for property tax payments due on May 1 to June 1. Under existing law, towns may only allow for a grace period of up to 10 days after the property tax deadline without interest or penalty.
“It is critical in this moment that we explore every option to lessen the burden on families and residents who have been financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “The governor’s order provides municipalities with the flexibility to appropriately respond to the needs of their residents, and potentially offers a much-needed reprieve for many families in Camden County.”
The order takes effect immediately. For information regarding your municipality, contact your local tax collector’s office directly.
