BAYONNE, NJ - Bayonne property owners will have until Monday, August 10 to pay their third quarter property taxes without penalty, city officials have announced.

While tax bills are due on Saturday, August 1 the City Council authorized a grace period for the additional timeframe.

Property owners may pay their taxes by mail or in person at City Hall, 630 Avenue C, or at Bayonne branches of BCB Community Bank, or by clicking here. 

Because Hudson County has not yet passed an official tax rate for 2020, the third quarter bills are estimated. The county is expected to  announce the tax rate in August.

By state law, quarterly payments received after the close of business on Monday, August 10, will incur interest charges dating back to Saturday, August 1.  For anyone making payment in person on August 10, the Tax Collector’s Office strongly recommends paying in person at City Hall before the close of business that day at 4:30 p.m. There are boxes inside the two sets of front doors at City Hall where taxpayers can drop off various payments. Be sure to drop your tax payment in the tax box, which looks like a mailbox.

Those who handle their property taxes through their monthly mortgage payments should have received advice copies of the property tax bills in the most recent tax mailing.  They should continue paying their property taxes through their mortgages.
