To prepay 2018 taxes or not seems to be the question this week.

LINDEN, NJ – Dec 29, 2017 – Linden Mayor Derek Armstead announces the town’s tax office opening this Saturday only plus extending the city’s website acceptance capabilities allowing residents to prepay their 2018 taxes before the new tax law goes into effect January 1, 2018. Residents can pre-pay taxes before the deadline, first by coming into the Linden tax office tomorrow, Saturday, December 30, 2017, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.; or by pre-paying taxes on-line through December 31, 2017, 11:59 p.m., at The on-line option extends pre-payment another day.

“I stress that residents should take advantage of the two prepay options that we immediately put into effect over the next few days,” said Mayor Armstead. “And, residents should also check with a tax adviser if tax prepayment works for you,” he added.

Putting Linden residents first, the Mayor’s decision to open the tax collector’s office on Saturday and extend the online pre-payment until December 31, 2017, 11:59 p.m., resulted from N.J. Governor Christie’s executive order on Wednesday and the new tax law signed by President Trump that goes into effect on January 1, 2018.

For more information, tax payers can contact the tax collector’s offices at (908) 474-8434, (908) 474-8430, (908) 474-8431, or (908) 474-8433.

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
