Why did I receive a Tax Sale Notice?

In accordance with NJSA 54:5-19, any Municipal Tax, Sewer and Assessment remaining unpaid is subject to Tax Sale.  Any payments made  must be in the form of Cash, Certified Check or Money Order. 

Process leading to a Tax Sale: If payment is not received by the Property Tax, Sewer Tax and Municipal Assessment due date, a delinquency notice goes out. The notice includes a statement “to avoid upcoming tax sale, make all payments by date indicated. (Outside vendor VITAL Computer maintains files of delinquencies and sends a list to the Tax Collector). After this date,  if payment is not received, a notice is sent informing the tax payer of the Tax Sale date. If payment is not made by the Tax Sale date, a lien is put on the property.
