Pre-Payment of 2018 Property Taxes
Posted: December 22, 2017
In light of the sweeping tax overhaul approved by the U.S. Congress earlier this week, the township has received multiple inquiries as to whether property owners would be permitted to pre-pay their 2018 estimated taxes on or before the end of 2017.
The township is able to accept a pre-payment of the first and second quarters of a property owner’s 2018 estimated property taxes. All payments must physically be in the tax office on or before close of business on Friday, December 29, 2017.
If you have a mortgage company that escrows and pays on your behalf, you must consult with them to prevent the duplication of payment(s). Please note that the township cannot provide tax advice and we encourage property owners to consult with their licensed tax professionals as whether a pre-payment of taxes is advisable or not.
