JACKSON, NJ – You don’t see a press release about it. There probably will not be a highlighted council meeting video clip published to promote it, but Jackson Township residents now have an extra 21 days to pay their second-quarter tax bills. This comes after Governor Phil Murphy extended the grace period for late payments through June 1st for all of New Jersey. You can let that money sit in the account, accruing interest until the end of the month if you want to. The plan implemented by Governor Murphy extends the penalty-free grace period from May 10th to June 1st.
Shortly after this announcement, Jackson publicly acknowledged this story:
The Mayor and Council have extended the Grace Period on the May 1, 2020 tax quarter to June 1, 2020. Payments for the May tax quarter must be received in the Tax Collectors office on or before June 1, 2020 to avoid interest. For more information please feel free to contact the Tax Collector’s office at 732-928-1200 ext 1174.
