East Windsor Township property owners will be able to pay their property taxes from the comfort of their home – or wherever else they may be – using a new online system, beginning next month.
The new online tax payment option, which is available on the East Windsor Township website, will allow residential and commercial property owners to pay their property taxes by e-check, debit card or credit card, starting Jan. 2, 2018. Payments can be made 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
There are convenience fees attached to the online payments. The fee is $1.05 for e-check payments, $3.95 for VISA debit card payments and 2.95 percent for all other credit card or debit card payments.
The new online system also allows property owners to have online access to the current year’s tax bill, as well as their tax account history, for the past three years.
Mayor Janice Mironov said the software program “offers a great, easy convenience” for property owners by allowing them to view the status of their tax account and the amount due, around the clock. It also expands the options available to property owners to make tax payments.
“It allows residents to make payments by e-check, commonly used to pay bills, for a $1 program fee. Residents can avoid a trip to Town Hall or being dependent on mail delivery,” Mayor Mironov said.
“While we always welcome residents, we expect the use of this software program will result in many fewer phone calls and visits, with a significant savings on East Windsor Township staff time,” she said.
