          FAILURE TO RECEIVE A TAX BILL?

FAILURE TO RECEIVE A TAX BILL DOES NOT RELIEVE THE OBLIGATION OF THE TAX PAYER.



          PAYMENT METHODS - HOW CAN I MAKE A TAX PAYMENT?

You can make a payment in person or by mail using a check, money order, cash or a debit/credit card, or you can make an online tax payment using an electronic-check or credit card.

For your convenience, we have a drop slot on the left hand side tax counter. These payments are collected no later than 4:30pm every day and the payment is posted the same day. Any payments dropped off after 4:30p.m. will be posted the next business day.

To avoid statutory interest, tax payments must be received in the Tax Office by the 10th day of the month when a quarter is due. If the 10th falls on a holiday or weekend, grace period will be extended to the following business day. After that, the interest is retroactive to the 1st of the month in which the payment is due. POSTMARK IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.



          CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS?

You can now pay your property taxes with an online credit card online on the Borough website at www.englewoodcliffs.org (a convenience fee will apply and will be indicated to you before your payment submission based on your bill payment amount.)   



          PAYMENT RECEIPTS?

Your cancelled check is your receipt. If you do require a printed receipt, please send us a stamped, self-addressed envelope, and a receipt will be mailed to you.

If you make an online tax payment, a digital receipt webpage will be displayed that you can print when the municpality receives your online payment submission.  



          RETURNED CHECKS?

If your check is returned to us you will be charged a $25.00 handling fee.



          OWNERSHIP CHANGES?

WHEN OWNERSHIP OF THE PROPERTY CHANGES, THE TAX BILL IS TO BE FORWARDED TO THE NEW OWNER(S) OR THEIR PAYING AGENT.
