Governor Murphy recently signed Executive Order No. 130, which allows municipalities to extend the grace period for property tax payments due on May 1st to June 1st. The Dumont Governing Body strongly support any action that provides much-needed relief to taxpayers struggling financially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, including this measure. After a careful financial analysis, The Mayor and Council supported a resolution to extend the second quarter property tax grace period to June 1st 2020 to provide a modest measure of tax relief to residents that have been affected by this horrific public health crisis. Please be advised any payment made after June 1st accrues retroactive interest back to May 1st as per statutory guidelines.
