INTEREST CHARGED ON UNPAID TAXES:
Any taxes remaining unpaid by the 1st of February, May, August and November
are subject to interest at the rate of 8% per year for delinquencies up to $1,500.00
and 18% per year for delinquencies over $1,500.00.
Please note that once a delinquency reaches the 18% threshold,
the account must be paid up to date before interest reverts back to 8%.
The Borough of Spotswood does provide a 10 day grace period for paying your taxes;
however, on the 11th day, interest is charged from the actual due date of the 1st.
It is also important to note that the date of receipt by the Tax Collector, not the mailing postmark,
is used to determine the delinquency date.
Any account with a current calendar year delinquency together with accrued interest totalling
$10,000.00 or more on December 31st, is subject to an additional 6% year-end penalty.
Call the Tax Office at
732-251-0700 ext. 831
to determine the correct amount of interest to submit
with any delinquent tax payment prior to sending the payment.
