Comparison of Tax Rates




Taxes


Taxes are due and payable on the First of February, May, August and November. The Borough of Pitman allows a 10-Day grace period. When the 10th falls on a weekend or holiday the grace period will be extended to the next business day. Interest on late payments is calculated at 8% for the first $1,500.00 and 18% on all amounts over $1,500.00. A 6% penalty is also added for all delinquent taxes over $10,000.


A lock box is located in the vestibule of the Municipal Building and can be used to drop off payments for Taxes and/or Water/Sewer. This box is checked during business days only once a day at 8:00am only. If dropping payment off during business hours, please drop off in person at the counter.
