Property taxes are due February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1. Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt you from paying taxes or interest due on delinquent taxes. The City does permit a 10 day grace period. The State of New Jersey does not permit the use of a postmark to verify payment. Payment must be received by the tenth day or the State requires payment of the mandated late charge. A charge of 8% interest per annum on the first $1,500.00 of delinquency and 18% per annum on any amount in excess of $1,500.00.

New Sewer Bill will be mailed out end of January. This Bill will have 4 payment stubs for February, May, Aug. and Nov. Qtrs. You will only receive 1 bill a year for Sewer Billing. You can pay 1 Qtr at a time or all 4 Qtrs.

Automatic Debit Payments for Tax Bills:
The City has developed a system to accept Automatic (ACH) Debit Payments for taxes from Garfield residents. This program will allow residents to enroll with the Tax Collector and permit Automatic Debit transactions from a bill payer’s designated checking or savings account whenever a tax payment is due. Enrollment may be for tax payments only.

For tax payments, 15 days prior to due date a notice would be sent to you notifying you that your account will be debited at the time your tax payment is due.

If you are interested in participating in the ACH program, please call the Tax office and an application will be mailed to you or download the application (CLICK HERE).

Please include a voided check with your application, and return to the Tax Office.
