For all delinquent payments received after November 12, 2020, certified funds (certified check, money order, cashier’s check or cash) will be required and no personal checks can be accepted. 

Please note, failure to receive a bill does not exempt you from paying tax or sewer bills. If you are having problems with receiving your bills, please notify your local Post Office.

Due to Covid-19, City Hall is closed to the public but Tax & Sewer payments be dropped off at anytime in the in the drop box to the left of the main entrance located at 1 Municipal Plaza.

From Tax Collector’s 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. Postmarks cannot be honored.


Starting November 13th, 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, posted on and posted in 5 public places.


Once the tax sale generated, a 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)
