The Tax Collector's office is responsible for billing and collection of property taxes that support the three local governmental units: Atlantic County, School District of Egg Harbor Township and the Municipality of Egg Harbor Township. Tax bills are issued in June and are payable quarterly on the first of August, November, February and May. Late penalties are added to tax bills after the 10th day of the month due. The Tax Collector enforces tax delinquencies through the tax sale process. Tax sales are accelerated in Egg Harbor Township and are held usually in mid-December for any existing current-year municipal delinquencies.
The Tax Collector's Office also administers all property tax deductions, working in conjunction with the Tax Assessor's Office. Also available to the public is information pertaining to the various New Jersey State Tax reimbursement programs.
