Tax Bills Will Be Mailed Soon, Says Collector

Cinnaminson's tax collector Sandra Root is preparing bills this week.

Cinnaminson’s tax bills are currently being prepared and will go out to homes in the township no later than Sept. 19, said Cinnaminson tax collector.

Sandra Root said the bills are in her office and this week, she is finishing the folding and stuffing. She said she hopes to send them out by Friday, however if that deadline comes and goes, her absolute deadline is next Wednesday.

“I will work all night if I have to,” Root said. “They will be out by that day.”

The county did not approve its budget until Aug. 22, which meant .

A week later, Burlington County towns received their rates and the bills were prepared. The delay stemmed from the sale of the Buttonwood Hospital, which was finalized only a week before the budget was approved.

Residents will have until Oct. 15 to pay their bills without interest. However, the Aug. 1 deadline still stands—there’s just an extended grace period.

Interest will be charged back to Aug. 1 if residents are late with payment past the grace period.

That information—which is New Jersey’s policy, not township policy—will be stated on the tax bills, Root said.

Additionally, any 2012 balance that remains as of Nov. 11, will be subject to the tax sale lien costs. Since Nov. 11 is a holiday, the grace period for that is extended until Nov. 13. The actual due date is Nov. 1.

There are a few ways to pay your tax bill this year and online payment is becoming more popular.  is still available however paying online or directly debiting from a checking account is gaining popularity.

Residents can visit this site and add in their property information to pay their taxes online.

There is also a form (attached to the right) residents can fill out and hand into the tax collector’s office with a voided check to start directly debiting their accounts every time taxes are due.

Billy, thanks but it is not a law. I do not argue with Chrisiina, she is always right. She is also skilled at deletions. But thanks for all your suggestions.

So Christina, your assuming that all the townships in Burlington County did not send out there Aug 1 Tax bills b/c the County did not pass the budget, I do not think so but I am not a reporter, just a person who tries to pay his share of the tax burden....thanks

I'm assuming we can wait to pay the taxes due on 8/1/12 until we receive our new tax bill, at least I hope so.
