FAQ: Does the City of Asbury Park hold an accelerated tax sale and how does it work?
The City of Asbury Park is an accelerated tax sale municipality.
It is the obligation of the tax collector to collect all property taxes, sewer and other municipal charges in the year that they are due. This helps greatly reduce the reserve for uncollected taxes, helping to keep the tax levy flat.
As a courtesy, the Tax Collector mails delinquent “reminder” notices for the first 3 quarters of the year. Due to limited timing, delinquent notices are not mailed for outstanding charges as of November 10th. Information is also printed on the back of all tax bills.
To avoid the tax sale process, property owners must pay all municipal charges in full by November 10th.
Starting November 11th, any properties with delinquencies will be included in the accelerated tax sale. The date of the accelerated tax sale will be announced and is usually in mid-December. The tax sale list will be published in a local paper.
Starting November 11th, a tax sale fee of $65-$150 is added to each delinquent account as required by state law and cannot be waived. The fee includes a 2% cost of sale charge, with the minimum $15 and maximum $100, and the cost of 2 tax sale mailings at $25 each. (N.J.S.A. 54:5-38, N.J.S.A. 54:5-26)
