LIVINGSTON, NJ - The township has mailed letters of apology to residents who recently received tax sale notices.
“We are sorry if this letter caused any concern for our residents,” said Vibha Desai, township tax collector. “The notices were supposed to be sent to alert homeowners to the fact that their property may be subject to the township’s accelerated tax lien sale at the end of the year. Due to technical problems, the notices were mistakenly sent to homeowners with current accounts.”
Homeowners who currently have outstanding property taxes or water and sewer bills will not be included in the accelerated tax lien sale. Notices will be issued following the November deadline for fourth quarter property taxes notifying homeowners with past-due accounts that all outstanding amounts must be settled by Nov. 22. If those past-due accounts are not settled by Nov. 22, the properties will then be included in the annual tax lien sale.
