 Pursuant to NJSA 54:4-64 delivery of tax bills, the validity of any tax or assessment, or the time at which it shall be payable, shall not be affected by the failure of a taxpayer to receive a tax bill, but every taxpayer is put on notice to ascertain from the proper official of the taxing district the amount which may be due for taxes or assessments against him or his property.

 The Final/Preliminary tax bills are mailed once a year in July/August.  Chesterfield Township has a ten-day grace period.  Tax payments must be received by the tenth day of the month they are due or they will accrue interest as of the first of that month.  Postmarks will not be accepted.

 If you require a receipt for your payment please send the entire bill and a stamped self addressed envelope.

 Please do not postdate your checks.  We are unable to hold them as New Jersey statutes require payments to be deposited within 48 hours of receipt.

 If you have new construction or have made alterations to your property, you may receive an added assessment bill in October.  The bill will be prorated from the date of completion.  This added assessment bill will be in addition to your regular bill.  Therefore, you may have two bills to pay in November, February and May.
