TAX AND SEWER PAYMENT INFORMATION

  • When mailing tax and sewer payments, please indicate Tax/Sewer Department on the outside of the envelope. 

  • Please be sure to include the appropriate tax and/or sewer stub with your payment.

  • Your check is your receipt.  If you require a receipt or would like your bill receipted,  please include your entire bill along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope.  

  • If making a payment through an online banking service, it is imperative you identify your tax payments with your block and lot number and a qualification code if applicable and sewer payments with your account number.  This will enable us to correctly post your payment.  Please allow enough time for your bank to send us the check.  It can take as long as ten (10) days for us to receive an online payment.

  • Under no circumstances will we accept post-dated checks!  All post-dated checks will be returned.  

REPORTING WATER LEAKS  

  • Your sewer bill is based on your water consumption from the previous year.  If you find a leak immediately contact a registered New Jersey plumber and obtain affidavits from Wildwood Water Utility, 4400 New Jersey Avenue , Wildwood , New Jersey , 08260 .  Their phone number is 609-522-2444. 

  • In order for Wildwood Water to make an adjustment due to a water leak it is a requirement for both you and the plumber to complete the necessary affidavits and return them to Wildwood Water. 

  • In order for us to make an adjustment to your sewer bill we also need copies of the affidavits submitted to Wildwood Water.

  • Once Wildwood Water makes an adjustment to your water bill they will provide us with a copy of the adjustment and we in turn will correct your sewer bill accordingly.

  • If you have any questions regarding water meter readings for the previous year, please contact Wildwood Water Utility at 609-522-2444.  They will be able to provide you with your water readings and if necessary verify their correctness.  If Wildwood Water corrects a water meter reading they will provide us with their documentation and we in turn will correct your sewer bill accordingly.  

TAX SALE INFORMATION

All properties having outstanding tax and/or sewer balances in the prior year are subject to tax sale.  The tax sale process begins approximately five (5) weeks before the sale and includes publication of the properties to be sold in the local newspaper.  Once this process has begun additional costs accrue and are added to the outstanding balance.  In order to have the property removed from the tax sale list after the tax sale process has begun, all payments must be made by cash, money order or certified check only.  No personal checks will be accepted after the tax sale process has been initiated.   Once the tax sale is completed a lien is placed against the property and additional costs will accrue.  Lien redemption will include additional redemption fees and can only be redeemed with payments made by cash, money order or certified check.  No personal checks will be accepted for a lien redemption.  In order to prevent your property from going through the very expensive tax sale process, it is important for you to keep your tax and sewer accounts current.
