The Final/Preliminary tax bills are mailed once a year in July/August.  Chesterfield Township has a ten-day grace period.  Tax payments must be received by the tenth day of the month they are due or they will accrue interest as of the first of that month.  Postmarks will not be accepted.

If you require a receipt for your payment please send the entire bill and a stamped self addressed envelope.

Please do not postdate your checks.  We are unable to hold them as New Jersey statutes require payments to be deposited within 48 hours of receipt.

If you have new construction or have made alterations to your property, you may receive an added assessment bill in October.  The bill will be prorated from the date of completion.  This added assessment bill will be in addition to your regular bill.  Therefore, you may have two bills to pay in November, February and May.
