Property tax bills are mailed out ONCE a year, usually in mid-July, and cover four quarterly payments.  The bill mailed in July includes 3rd and 4th quarters of the current year and the preliminary 1st and 2nd quarters of the next year.

Payments are due quarterly: February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1.  We offer a 10-day grace period, the maximum allowed by state law.  If the 10th day falls on a weekend or a Borough holiday, the grace period is extended to the Borough’s next business day.  State statues authorize the Borough to charge interest at the rate of 8% for the first $1500.00 and 18% on all amounts over $1500.00 on all delinquent taxes.  A penalty of 6% will be charged on any delinquency in excess of $10,000 if not paid by the end of the year.

Payments may be made in person or by-mail.  We accept cash, checks or money orders made payable to “Borough of Pine Hill”.  Please bring your original tax bill to the tax office when paying in person.  Payments may also be mailed to Borough of Pine Hill ATTN: Tax Office 45 W. 7th Ave., Pine Hill, NJ 08021.  Remittances requiring a receipt MUST be accompanied by the entire tax bill with a self-addressed stamped envelope.  Otherwise, detach the appropriate stub and mail with your check – cancelled check will be your receipt.
