Planning the Future...Preserving the Past

Tax Collection
(609) 652-3700 ext 234  ▪  Hours: Mon-Fri 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Chief Financial Officer: Marilyn Dolcy  |  Deputy Tax Collector: Joan Truman

The Tax Collector is charged with the receipt and collection of all taxes, assessments and sewer fees both current and delinquent. All funds are remitted to the Tax Collection Department.

It is important to note that the municipal taxes are only a portion of a Galloway Township property taxpayer's obligation. Three other separate governmental entities, Atlantic County government, Galloway Township Local Public School District, and the Greater Egg Harbor Regional School District develop and adopt their own budgets to be funded by taxes.

However, New Jersey's fiscal laws require the municipal government of Galloway Township to serve as a billing and collection agency for all four separate entities.

A year-end penalty will be charged at 6% on all delinquent balances (including interest) in excess of $10,000 not received by December 31.

New Jersey Law (NJS 54:5 et seq) requires all prior year delinquent taxes and municipal charges be sold at an annual Tax Sale.  The Township of Galloway holds an Accelerated Tax in December of each year for all taxes, sewer and other municipal charges delinquent after November 1st the current year.   Affected property owners, mortgage companies and all interested parties will be notified by mail. To avoid publication of a property owner's name and address, all  delinquent municipal charges and all accrued interest and penalties must be received.   If you have more than one delinquent charge (property taxes, sewer charges) a separate check must be received for each.
