MADISON, NJ - Madison homeowners should be aware the third quarter tax bills will be mailed the week of July 11 with a payment due date of August 1.
Residents should note the short turnaround time. "The Borough’s normal 10 day grace period will apply," was noted in a message sent from the Borough today.
As in years past, these bills will include the final payments for 3rd and 4th quarter of this year and preliminary payments for the 1st and 2nd quarter of next year.
"Residents that will be away during the second half of July have two options. First, you can pay your property taxes on-line at anytime from anywhere by logging onto www.rosenet.org and clicking “Online Bills”. Make sure you have your bank account and routing number as well as your property’s block and lot number. If that option does not work for you, then the Tax Collector can calculate an estimated bill that you can pay before you leave town," the Borough Tax Department reminds homeowners.
Why The Delay? "The Tax Collector had to wait until the NJ Legislature passed the state budget to confirm state municipal aid and then we had to wait until Morris County Tax Board calculated and released the tax rate," they added.
