[ARCHIVED] Hopewell Township extends 2nd qtr grace period to June 1

Hopewell Township Committee Extends Property Tax Grace Period to June 1

At a special meeting on May 8, the Hopewell Township Committee voted unanimously to extend the grace period for second quarter property taxes from May 11 to June 1.  A recent executive order by Governor Phil Murphy provided local municipalities the right to extend the grace period.

Approximately 24% of a property tax bill goes to pay Mercer County taxes and 58% goes to the Hopewell Valley Regional School District.  The Township is legally required to pay 100% of the amount due to Mercer County and the School District, regardless of the amount of taxes collected. Those payments are due prior to June 1. The Township Committee voted to extend the grace period after determining that the Township had sufficient funds on hand to meet obligations as of June 1.  

Residents can send tax payments by mail, leave payments at the drop box at the Township Building, or pay by credit card through the Township’s website (service fee applies).
