ROBBINSVILLE, NJ - To help families financially hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic, the Robbinsville Township Council passed a resolution Thursday night extend the deadline for local tax payments. Under the resolution, the Council noted that coronavirus pandemic "has created significant negative effects on the economy resulting in mass unemployment."
The Resolution is in accordance Executive Order 130 issued by Governor Phil Murphy that allows municipal governments with a calendar year budget cycle to adopt a resolution instituting a grace period for the payment of second-quarter taxes. Robbinsville Township Mayor Dave Fried and Township Council chose to "exercise this opportunity" by extending the grace period for the payment of second-quarter property taxes to June 1.
Robbinsville taxpayers also received relief in the form of interest tax interest deferral. Interest for unpaid second-quarter taxes also shall not begin to accrue until after June 1.
