COLLECTION OF TAXES

The Tax Collector has no authority to waive penalty or interest for any reason.
A PENALTY OF 1¼% per month will be added to any outstanding amount on the 1st day of each month until paid. Failure to receive a Tax Bill does not relieve the Taxpayer from payment of Taxes or Penalty. If a property has changed ownership, please return the Tax Bill to the Township Office.
