WASHINGTON, D.C. – February 10, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — Mayor Mark A. Smith has extended the grace period for paying first quarter property tax payments to Tuesday, February 18. The original end of the grace period had been Monday, February 10. Mayor Smith extended the deadline, because winter weather conditions made it difficult for some property owners to make payments. Payments made by Tuesday, February 18, will avoid a late fee. Property owners may pay their taxes by mail or in person at City Hall, 630 Avenue C, or at Bayonne branches of BCB Community Bank, or through the City website, www.bayonnenj.org.
By state law, quarterly payments received after the close of business on Tuesday, February 18, will incur interest charges dating back to February 1, the nominal, legal due date for the first quarter. For anyone making payment in person on Tuesday, February 18, the Tax Collector’s Office strongly recommends paying at City Hall.
