First Quarter Property Taxes are due Feb. 1. To avoid interest penalties, payments must be received by 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 10.
Payments by mail can be sent to: City Hall, Attn: Tax Collector, 233 JFK Boulevard, Sea Isle City, N.J. 08243. In-person payments can be made at the Tax Collector’s Office on the second floor of City Hall from Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Payments can also be made by using one of two drop boxes at City Hall, which are available for payment drop-off 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
One drop box is located outdoors on the parking lot level, under the building to the left of the public elevator (this box is handicapped accessible).
The other drop box is in the lobby, to the right of the revolving doors as you enter the building’s main entrance. The drop boxes are emptied throughout the business day.
Payments dropped after 4 p.m. will be credited to the next business day.
Important Info Regarding Payments Made With Online Banking Services:
Sea Isle City’s Tax & Utility Collection Office has automated the process of online payments and no longer reviews online payments manually.
Online payments automatically post to the account number that those customers enter in their online banking payment system. Unfortunately, many customers who use online banking often input inaccurate or incomplete information into their bill payment system.
Take a moment to double-check that you have added the correct account number information in the correct format so that your payments will be credited to the account you intend to pay.
Follow These Guidelines When Banking Online:
Customers who utilize an online banking payment system will need to create two (2) separate “Payees” (one for property taxes and one for water/sewer utility payments).
Customers with more than one account for property taxes and/or more than one account for utility payments must send separate payments for each (only one account number per payment).
Online banking customers must include the following information in their bill payment system to ensure the proper application of payments.
- FOR PROPERTY TAXES: Use your full 8-digit account number, including the leading zeros (example: 00001442). To find your property tax account number, look for the box located at the top left side of your property tax bill (just above the assessed valuation information).
- FOR WATER-SEWER BILLS: Use your utility account number including the “dash” (example: 1086-0). To find your utility account number, look at the top of the box on the left-hand side of your utility bill (just under the City’s contact information).
