The Tax Collector is responsible for the billing, collection, reporting and enforcement of Municipal taxes for the Borough of Cape May Point. As a Statutory Officer of the State of New Jersey, the Tax Collector is obligated to follow all the State Statutes regarding property tax collection including billing, due dates, interest on delinquent tax payments and tax sale procedures.
- Taxes are due and payable quarterly on the first of February, May, August and November. There is a 10-day grace period for each quarter. If payments are made after the grace period interest will be charged as of the due date.
Taxes must be received in the Collector’s Office on or before the 10th. However, if the 10th falls on a weekend or Legal Holiday, you have until the next business day to make payment without interest.
- Interest will be charged at the rate of 8% per annum up to $1500.00 of the delinquency and 18% per annum over $1500.00 until taxes are current.
- Please notify the Tax Collector of Address changes in writing via fax, mail or email.
- Tax bills are to be forwarded upon sale of a property between buyer and seller. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the owner from paying taxes. Interest will be applied to all late payments. Please contact this office if you need a copy of your tax bill.
- To receive a receipt for a payment, please include the entire tax bill with a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Otherwise, detach the appropriate stub and mail with your check. The cancelled check will be your receipt.
