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 2014 third quarter installment bill. This billing will be due on August 1, 2014 with a grace period until August 11, 2014.
Once the Burlington County Board of Taxation strikes the tax rate for Bordentown Township, a reconciled 4th quarter 2014/preliminary 2015 bill will be issued. We apologize for any inconvenience.
