Tax Collector

Rose Marie Cokinos, Tax Collector/Treasurer and staff, Lottie Szczur and Barbara Smilowski are looking forward to serving you in 2015.

Property taxes are due February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1. Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt you from paying taxes or interest due on delinquent taxes. The City does permit a 10 day grace period. The State of New Jersey does not permit the use of a postmark to verify payment. Payment must be received by the tenth day or the State requires payment of the mandated late charge. A charge of 8% interest per annum on the first $1,500.00 of delinquency and 18% per annum on any amount in excess of $1,500.00.

New Sewer Bill will be mailed out end of January.  This Bill will have 4 payment stubs for February, May, Aug. and Nov. Qtrs.  You will only receive 1 bill a year for Sewer Billing.  You can pay 1 Qtr at a time or all 4 Qtrs.

The Tax Collector’s office is located at 111 Outwater Lane in Garfield. The hours of operation are 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M..
