Cherry Hill Township Tax Grace Period to be Extended to June 1
On April 30, Township Council passed a Resolution to extend the grace period for payment of the May 1 quarterly property taxes to June 1. The move comes after Governor Murphy issued an executive order granting municipalities the authority to extend the grace period, which by state statute, is normally set at ten days.
The executive order does not change the due date of May 1, but instead extends the grace period for payment to June 1. This allows property owners to make payments to the Tax Collector on or before June 1 without accruing interest or penalties. Payments received after June 1 will accrue interest from the statutory due date of May 1.
The Township is encouraging residents that are able to make their payments by May 1 to please do so, as these quarterly payments are utilized to keep vital services in the Township running – including Police, Fire, trash and public works, as well as fund our teachers and schools.
