News & Notices from the Office of the Tax Collector
Due to the anticipated delay in the Burlington County Board of Taxation’s ability to strike tax rates on time, I have been directed to issue an estimated 2013 third quarter installment bill. This billing will be due on August 1, 2013 with a grace period until August 10, 2013.
Once the Burlington County Board of Taxation strikes the tax rate for Bordentown Township, a reconciled 4th quarter 2013/preliminary 2014 bill will be issued. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The 2013 Tax Sale for unpaid 2012 delinquencies will be held October 10, 2013 at 10 am in the municipal court room located at 1 Municipal Drive. The first advertisement will be in the Burlington County Times beginning September 12, 2013. The list will be posted at a later date.
Important information regarding Homestead Rebates: Gov. Christie announced in his 2013 Budget Address that homestead rebates for New Jersey residents will be delayed until August this year.
There is a net increase of $7 million this year to state programs that soften the blow for property taxpayers. However, Christie will delay homestead rebates for more than 800,000 residents to close a budget shortfall this year. Those homeowners were expecting their rebates in February — Christie first postponed them until May and yesterday pushed them to August.
Property Tax Reimbursement/PTR Program: The Division of Taxation began mailing 2012 Senior Freeze/PTR applications, to eligible applicants, in February. The filing deadline is June 3, 2013.

From the Tax Collectors Office: Residents eligible for the 2011 Homestead Rebate, will be receiving a new tax bill for the May 1, 2013 installment.
