For taxes due May 1st, Grace Period now ends June 1st
At a Special Meeting of the Township Committee on Thursday, May 7, 2020, the Fredon Township Committee voted to take advantage of Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 130, which allows the municipality to extend the Second Quarter Property Tax Payment Grace Period to June 1st, rather than May 11th in 2020.
 
The Second Quarter Property Tax Payment Due Date remains May 1st. 
As long as property taxes are paid by June 1st, there will be no interest charged. However, if taxes are not paid until after the June 1st extended grace period ends, interest will be charged retroactively back to the May 1st original due date.
In taking this action, the Township Committee has implemented the only form of taxpayer relief that was fiscally advised, in the interest of easing the economic burden on residents to the greatest extent possible.
 
Payment Options
The Municipal Offices will not be open to accept walk-in tax payments for the foreseeable future. Tax payments may be placed in the drop box located to the left of the front door of the Municipal Building. The drop box is checked first thing in the morning, throughout the day and at the close of business at 4:00 P. M.  If you would like your bill stamped with a paid/received date and are using the postal service or drop box, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope in order to facilitate that. Residents are encouraged to mail their payments through the USPS or use the e-check feature and pay online at Fredonnj.gov.
NO CASH PAYMENTS!
