I received a delinquent tax notice; what do I do now?

There is a 10-day grace period after the due date of property tax and sewer utility bills.  If payment is not received by the 10th of the month that the bill is due, it is delinquent and a delinquent notice will be mailed. If the 10th falls on a Saturday, Sunday or Township holiday, payment is due by the next business day.  
 Delinquent  tax notices list the type of delinquency, taxes, sewer or municipal assessment with the interest charge and the grand total due.  Interest is calculated on the delinquent notice up to a certain date that is indicated on the notice.  If payment is received in the Tax Collector's Office by the close of the day indicated on the notice, the amount reflected on the notice is the amount that should be submitted.  If payment is made after the indicated date, call the HamStat Call Center at 586-0311 so that your interest can be recalculated.  

Please contact the Call Center at 586-0311 with any questions you may have about your delinquent notice.
It is listed on the notice that payment can be made through the website, www.HAMILTONNJ.COM. 
If paying in person, personal check, cash or money order is accepted.
