Please also mail your New Jersey PTR-1 or PTR-2 forms to the tax collector in order to reduce the in-person visits to the office during this time when the number of coronavirus cases is on the rise. The tax collector will complete the form and mail it back to you. The due date to the State is November 2, 2020.

In order to minimize everyone’s exposure to the coronavirus COVID-19,  Upper Freehold will no longer be accepting cash payments. All payments must be made online, check via mail, or check payments deposited in the drop box in the municipal building foyer (open 24 X 7) or in the tax office during normal business hours.

Tax collection due dates are as follows: February 1 – May 1 – August 1 – November 1. By resolution the Township Committee permits a grace period The grace period for the current year is 10 calendar day.

Should the tenth fall on a weekend or holiday the following regular business day will be the last day of the grace period. Any payments received after that business day will be posted with all interest and penalties due for that posting date.

Deductions

Five deductions are allowed by New Jersey State Statutes:  senior citizens, surviving spouse of qualified senior citizens, veterans, veteran’s widows/widowers and disabled persons.  Information regarding application forms and qualifications  may be obtained by contacting the Tax Assessors office.

Paying Your Taxes

Please be advised that the State of New Jersey does not allow the tax collector to acknowledge postmarks, therefore taxes must be received in the office on or before the end of the grace period(the tenth of the month due).  However, if the tenth falls on a weekend or legal holiday, you have until the next business day to make payment.  All payments may be made by cash, check or money order.

  • When paying in person, bring your entire bill with you so that we may receipt the back of the bill for you.
  • When paying by mail, send the stub with your check and or if you wish to have a receipt, please send the entire bill with a self-addressed stamped envelope to:
    Upper Freehold Township Tax Collector
               314 Route 539
               Cream Ridge, NJ    08514 

Double Check Your Checks

It is quite often necessary to return checks that are incorrectly written.  These errors can result in delays that may cause interest charges for late payments.
By following the pointers listed below we hope some of these most common errors can be avoided.

  • Ensure the amount written out matches the amount in the number box.  This is the most common error.
  • Your check must be made payable to Upper Freehold Township. 
  • Make sure your check is signed and dated.
  • Please make sure the account you are writing the check on is valid.

In the event that your taxes are being paid beyond the ten-day grace period, please call the Collector’s office at 609-758-7738 ext. 214 or 215 for the amount of interest to be included in your payment.
