Welcome to the Township of Washington! When we are notified of deed changes by the Bergen County Clerk’s office, we update the property record and send you a current tax bill. However, those notifications don’t always coincide with property tax due dates. Please contact us if you need a tax bill – 201-666-8797.
By Statute, the validity of tax or assessment, or the time at which it shall be payable, shall not be affected by the failure of the taxpayer to receive a bill, but every taxpayer is put on notice to ascertain from the proper official of the taxing district the amount which may be due for taxes or assessment.
The Tax Collector is responsible for the annual billing, reporting, enforcing, and the quarterly collection of property taxes, as mandated by the State of New Jersey.
