The Tax Collector is responsible for billing, collection, reporting and enforcing property taxes for the Village of Ridgewood. Taxes are due February 1st, May 1st, August 1st, and November 1st. As per N.J.S.A. 54:4-64, “The validity of any tax or assessment, or the time at which it shall be payable, shall NOT be affected by the failure of a taxpayer to receive a tax bill, but every taxpayer is put on notice to ascertain from the proper official of the taxing district the amount which may be due for taxes and assessments.” There is a 10 day grace period for property tax payments. Payments must be received in this office no later than the 10th. Should the 10th fall on a weekend or holiday, taxes are due by the next business day. Postmark is not accepted. Late payments are charged interest at a rate of 8% on the first $1,500.00 of the delinquency and 18% on the balance. Since August 10th falls on a Saturday, third quarter taxes are due no later than Monday, August 12, 2019. Please mail your payments to the Village of Ridgewood Tax Collector, 131 N.
