ROSELLE, NJ - The Borough’s 3rd quarter tax bill came out this past week raising some concerns for many residents mainly wondering why it is my bill so high?
According to the Borough of Roselle’s Finance Department, this bill was an estimated bill that is always higher because of County and State budgets not being adopted yet.
Business Administrator Jack Layne released a statement on Monday addressing the questions and also noted that a possible significant “Reduction” may be seen in the 4th Quarter.
“Historically the 3rd quarter tax bill is always an estimated bill. This year the estimated amount is higher because the county tax was not available, the state budget was not adopted, and the municipal budget was still in the introduction phase when this bill was generated. To account for these multiple unknown variables, the 3rd quarter tax bill was higher than normal.”
Layne also noted, “The 3rd quarter tax bill is an isolated bill and should not be used to estimate an annual tax increase. The good news is that we anticipate a significant reduction in the 4th quarter tax bill. We will know the exact numbers for the fourth quarter after we receive a County tax rate and the State certifies our budget.”
According to Mayor Dansereau, the meeting will be televised, and she noted that it was scheduled to be televised a month ago, in order for those who may work or for any reason could not make the meeting.
