 Preliminary and Final Property Taxes

  The first half taxes (Preliminary) of any year are based on half of the previous years'  taxes. When the

  bill for the second half taxes (Final) is rendered, the tax rate has been established and the total years'

  tax fixed. The estimated (Preliminary) amount is  deducted and the remainder becomes your second

  half taxes (N.J.S.S. 54:4-64)


  Property Tax payment due dates are: February 1, May 1, August 1, Nov. 1

  All payments are due on the 1st of the month and each has a 10 day grace period (the maximum allowed

  by State law). Everyone in town, from a residential property or business, have the same tax rate.

  That tax rate is then multiplied by the assessed value to create the amount of taxes that you are billed.

  Any questions regarding your assessments should be addressed to the Tax Assessor at the above link.


 Sewer Tax payment due dates are: January 1, April 1, July 1, October 1.

 All payments are due on the 1st of the month and have a 30 day grace period. Union Beach sewer bills

 are flat rate fees of $125.00 per quarter, per living unit. Businesses are billed based on different

 criteria. An example would be that restaurants are billed based on seating capacity. 


 Tax Sales

 The Borough of Union Beach operates under a State Calendar Year of January 1 to December 31.

 Annually, at the close of our fiscal year, we have what is called a Tax Sale. That is when any tax

 balances due to the town at the end of the year remain unpaid, that amount (both property tax and

 sewer tax) will go to an advertised public sale where someone can come in and pay what is owed

 to the town and then they, in turn, hold a lien on the property. All liens must be paid in full and can

 be paid at the Tax office with certified funds.
