BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The State has not pushed back the May 1 deadline for New Jersey to pay their quarterly property tax payments, despite the COVID-19 health pandemic.
State law also allows for a 10-day grace period for property owners to make their payments without facing penalties. But municipalities are also required to turn over all portions of tax payments that fund local schools and county governments by the middle of the month.
Berkeley Heights residents are being strongly encouraged to pay their taxes on time, by May 1, so that the Township can fully fund this year’s Spring Bulk Pickup.
Our residents have a number of ways to pay their taxes, including:
- Online - There are two methods of online payments; see here for more information.
- With our newly implemented Edmunds module, taxpayers can now search for any property within Berkeley Heights by name, block, or lot; or conduct just a general search. You will be able to look at your payment history, make a payment, view tax rates, view current bill, project the interest on the closing date if you are closing on a house, and attorneys closing on properties will be able to generate a payment amount due as of a particular date.

- If you need to drop off a tax payment or other form, please deposit that in the SANTA mailbox on the front steps of Town Hall. Someone from our Finance office will call you to confirm receipt.
- Mail the payment to: Tax Collector 29 Park Avenue Berkeley Heights, NJ 07922
