Little Egg Harbor Township On-line Tax Account Look-up

Please read the following information carefully, as it will explain the fees associated
with paying your taxes on-line, as well as information pertaining to tax account look-up. 
Click on "I Agree" at the bottom to continue after reading.



On-line Tax Payment Convenience Fees
Please be advised that Credit Card and E-Check payments can only be made via the internet
and that there are convenience fees that will be charged to the user for each transaction. 
*Please note that the fee for using a debit card (other than a Visa debit card) is the same fee as using a credit card.
If you have the funds in your checking account, the fee for using an e-check is a flat $1.05 per transaction, 
instead of the 2.95% of the transaction amount incurred for credit / debit cards
(for Visa debit cards only, the convenience fee will be a flat $3.95 per transaction).

**Convenience fees are retained by the service provider and are not paid to, or shared with, the Township of Little Egg Harbor.

Interest
The interest listed on delinquent amounts is calculated to today's date.
Interest must be paid in full and will be deducted first, before any monies are applied to taxes.
Once interest is deducted, monies will be applied to the oldest taxes first.
Please contact our office at 609-296-7241 ext. 240 or 241 to obtain interest calculations for a future date.

Tax Account Look-up Disclaimer
***Tax account look-up is for informational purposes only and does not constitute a Municipal Tax Search.
Account information is subject to updates, corrections and reversals.
The Township of Little Egg Harbor is not responsible for erroneous interpretation of the records
or for changes made after the look-up. ***

Assessment Values
The assessment values that appear on the Tax Account Look-up section are from the last update to the Municipal Assessor's records, which only occurs twice a year, and may not reflect the assessed value on the Assessor's records.
Please keep in mind that the Assessor's records are always one year ahead of the current year.

Municipal & Third Party Tax Liens
Municipal & Third Party Tax Liens cannot be paid on-line. 
All redemption of liens must be made through the Tax Collector's Office with certified funds, such as a cashier's check, money order or cash.  Redemption figures must be requested in advance and may take three (3) or more business days to be provided.  (**On-line Tax Accounts with Third Party Tax Liens may report taxes as paid, however, the taxes may have been paid by the lien holder and are still due as part of the Third Party Tax Lien.  Municipal Liens may also report taxes as paid, however, the taxes may only have been transferred to the lien and still due as part of the Municipal Lien.**)

Properties in Bankruptcy
Tax accounts that have an open balance at the time of the bankruptcy filling may have those
balances transferred to a Special Charges Account.  Any taxes transferred to a Special Charges Account
will appear paid on the Regular Tax Account, but will still be due and owing under Special Charges. 
Properties in bankruptcy cannot be paid on-line.

Special Charges Accounts
Special Charges Accounts contain balances that are due in addition to the Regular Tax Account. 
Please contact this office at 609-296-7241 ext. 240 or 241
to obtain further information on accounts that are noted as having "special charges".
