The Office of the Tax Collector

The Tax Collector is charged with the receipt and collection of all local property taxes, both current and delinquent. All tax revenues are remitted to the CFO. It is important to note that the municipal portion of a Green Brook property owner's obligation is a small portion of the total obligation. The other public taxing entities are the Green Brook Public School District and the County of Somerset. (The school district budgets are subject to voter approval.) Both the Township of Green Brook and the County of Somerset, by voter referendum, initiated dedicated open space trust funds which are also part of the local tax bill. New Jersey law requires that the municipal tax collector serve as the billing and collection agency for all entities.

Real property taxes are due on February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1. The Township Committee has passed a resolution which allows for a ten-day grace period. Any real property tax payments received after the tenth calendar day after the due date are considered late and interest will be charged as follows:

On all unpaid and delinquent taxes, the rate of 8% per annum is charged on the first $1,500 of the delinquent payment and 18% per annum on any amount in excess of $1,500.

On all unpaid and delinquent improvement assessments, the rate of 8% per annum is charged on the first $1,500 of the delinquent payment and 12% per annum on any amount in excess of $1,500.

No interest shall be charged on taxes if payment is made within 10 calendar days after the date upon which the same becomes payable.

As authorized by state law, N.J.S.A., 54:5-61, a penalty of 6% (over and above the late fee) is charged for any delinquent payment in excess of $10,000 if the delinquent payment is not made prior to the end of the calendar year.

As authorized by state law, N.J.S.A., 54:5-61, an additional penalty of 4% is charged when taxes, interest and the costs of a Tax Sale Certificate exceed $5,000 and 6% when the sum exceeds $10,000.

There is a $5 charge for duplicate bills.
