GLEN ROCK, NJ - The mayor has extended the quarterly tax deadline of May 1 to June 1 following the governor's executive order, signed yesterday, allowing municipalities to extend the grace period for property tax payments.
Mayor Kristine Morieko sent out an email to residents announcing the extension after discussing the issue at last week's council meeting on April 22.
"Under existing law, towns were only able to provide for 10 days grace and until yesterday no mechanisms existed to allow municipalities to extend the grace period as a result of a public health related emergency," Morieko said in the email.
This afternoon, the members of the Council of the Borough of Glen Rock moved mountains to vote and unanimously approve an extension of the grace period to pay the Second Quarter 2020 Real Estate Taxes to June 1, 2020. All taxpayers in the Borough of Glen Rock may now pay their Second Quarter 2020 Real Estate Taxes by 4 p.m. on Monday, June 1, 2020 without incurring any additional interest charge. This resolution will be formally adopted on Friday but is effective immediately.
The extension applies only to the Second Quarter 2020 Real Estate Taxes and does not affect any prior or future real estate tax quarters.
