Tax Due Dates
Payment Due Date/Processing
Tax payments may be made in person Monday through Friday between the hours of 9am and 4:30pm or online.
The Borough of Harrington Park offers a 10 calendar day grace period for payment of taxes. Payment must be received by the last day of the grace period to avoid interest; therefore if the 10th falls on a Saturday, Sunday or Holiday, the last day of the grace period is extended to the next business day. (i.e. November 10th falls on a Saturday, we are closed Monday, November 12th for Veterans Day, the last day of the grace period would become Tuesday, November 13th to pay to avoid interest). On the day following the last day of the grace period, interest will be charged, reverting to the statutory due dates, at 8% on the first $1500.00 and 18% on the balance in excess of $1500.00. Therefore, any balance remaining is a principal balance which accrues additional interest until the account is brought current.
Please read the back of the tax bill for valuable information that may answer many of your questions.
If your mortgage company or bank is no longer responsible for paying your real estate taxes, contact the Tax Office at 201-768-1588 so we may update our records.
You may also email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org with any other changes as well (i.e. mailing address).
