I suppose it is a double standard, as I don't like all these breaks that developers get either, but if there were no penalties for paying your property tax bill late, there would be a lot more delinquent property tax bills than there are now, and the city would have severe cash flow problems. There has to be some accountability for paying your property tax bill late, just like there should be accountability for the property developers with their tax breaks and low-interest loans.

I don't like paying late payment interest either, but then how were people penalized for late payments before interest was imposed? It makes no sense.

While the city can put a lien on your property until you pay the balance owed, that doesn't bring in any cash the city needs to pay its bills.

Before anyone flames me, I'm asking a question on a separate issue - I certainly think the interest on this particular tax bill should be waived if people never got them in the mail.

This is great news: The city will propose zero interest. http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... ate_tax.html#incart_river

Years ago, a relative was in a hospital I paid her bills according to what was mailed. I am sure similar stories will be told about late bills and interests.

While I received my abatement bill, I too have not received by land tax bill. Yesterday I called the Tax Office, and they gave me the same information. I already knew the web site and therefore the amounts due. I wrote a check and put it in the US Mail slot.
Wait, that may be a bad idea :)

I remember in the 1990s something similar also happened. The council met and reduced the interest rate down to almost 0. We should not punish homeowners.

Jersey City tax collector will hand deliver returned-to-city tax bills, city spokesman says

By Ken Thorbourne | The Jersey Journal
on August 21, 2015 at 7:37 PM, updated August 21, 2015 at 8:48 PM

Due to what city officials say is a "post office issue," scores of residents did not receive their Aug. 1 quarterly tax bills in the mail. But because of a state statute, a city spokesman said tonight the city cannot move the looming Aug. 28 deadline for paying the bills.

The exact dimensions of the problem and when it came to light were not clear this evening. In an email to a city resident today, a city tax official said the botched mailing affected property owners in the 07305 zip code and part of 07304, a swath of territory that includes thousands of property owners.

Thanks for the reminder. I think the same thing happened in 2012. The City Council adopted the budget on August 1st 2012 and then the tax bills went out.

They haven't approved the budget yet. Once it's approved the bills will be issued, just sit tight, and brace yourself. It won't be less than the last one.

It's already 7/28 and we still haven't received the bill for Aug. The city online tax site has not been updated either. Does anyone know what's up?
