BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- Residents can expect to receive their yearly tax bills in the next two weeks. The Bloomfield Tax Collector’s Office will be mailing bills to residents by next Friday, August 10th.
In previous years, tax bills have gone out to residents in June or July. This year, the finalized number for tax bills was delayed due to the late adoption of the New Jersey state budget, which delayed the Bloomfield Board of Education’s school funding process. At their July 24th meeting, the BOE elected to defer additional state funding to the 2019-2020 school year.
Still, residents will have a full four weeks to pay their tax bills in person at the Township of Bloomfield Tax Collector’s Office, located in room 114 of the municipal building at 1 Municipal Plaza, Bloomfield. The grace period will extend until September 7th, and the Tax Collector’s Office will hold early hours during the week of August 13th-August 17th, opening at 8:00am for residents who want to pay their bills before going to work. If more residents show up early in the morning than any other time, the Office will likely open even earlier the next week. The Office remains open until 4:30pm Monday through Friday.
Residents with any questions are encouraged to call the Bloomfield Tax Collector’s Office at 973-680-4049.
