Tax Due Dates
Property tax payments are due on the first day of February, May, August and November. There is a 10-day grace period after which interest is applied in accordance with New Jersey State Law. Interest is calculated at 8% on the first $1,500 past due and 18% for any amount over $1,500.
The Tax Collector mails out tax bills once a year in late June or early July. New bills are not mailed when there is a change in ownership. You must contact the Tax Collector's Office for a duplicate bill. There is a $5 fee for duplicate bills. You may review your account information on the Tax Inquiry. Taxpayers whose mortgage company handles property tax payments will receive an advice copy of their tax bill. Please note that failure to receive a bill does not exempt you from paying taxes or the interest due on delinquent taxes.
Taxes can be paid in person, through mail, through automatic withdrawal or by credit card. In person payments can be made Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm in the Brick Township Municipal Building, 401 Chambers Bridge Road. In-person payments can be made with cash or check or money order made payable to Township of Brick. There is also a drop box available in the Municipal Building. For mailed payments, please note that the payment must be received by the 10th of February, May, August or November to avoid statutorily mandated interest. Postmarks are not accepted.
