The enactment of the federal "Tax Cut anf Jobs Act of 2017" apparenly places a deduction limit of $10,000 for local property and state income taxes. We do not know if pre-payment of property taxes will be of any advantage to you in your future federal tax filing. The Township has received no guidance on this matter and you should consult your tax professional for more information.
However, if you want to pre-pay your 2018 property taxes, we will accept the pre-payment. You presently have a bill representing the first half of 2018. If you want to pay an amount over and above that you may. In order for your payment to be recorded in 2017, we must have your payment in the office by 4:00 PM on Friday, December 29, 2017. Any payments made after this time will not be posted until 2018. Do not leave a payment in the dropbox after 8:00 AM Friday - please bring your payment into the office.
Furthermore, please be aware that we cannot reimburse pre-payments. They would simply be used as a credit for future property tax bills.
Thank you, and HAPPY NEW YEAR.
