The City of Asbury Park’s grace period for Tax & Sewer Payments Due May 1, 2020 has been extended to June 1, 2020 per Governor Murphy’s Executive Order No. 130 and City Council Resolution. Asbury Park homeowners will be able to pay by June 1, 2020 without incurring interest costs or penalties. For payments received after June 1, 2020, interest will revert back to May 1, 2020.
PILOT payments due dates were not extended under the Governor’s Order and are still due May 1, 2020. To avoid interest penalties, pay by May 11, 2020.
For applicants that need to have their Property Tax Reimbursement forms (Tax Freeze) certified by the Tax Collector: Complete the top portion (Part 1) and either mail it to Tax Collector (City Hall, 1 Municipal Plaza, Asbury Park, NJ 07712) or drop it off in the after-hours drop box to the left of the main entrance of City Hall. PTR forms will be completed and returned to you by mail.
The Tax & Sewer Collections Department is responsible for billing, collection, recording and enforcement of tax and sewer revenue. As a statutory officer of the State of New Jersey, the Tax Collector is obligated to follow all State Statutes regarding property tax collection--including billing, due dates, interest on delinquent payments and tax sale procedures.
