Tax Collection

The Tax Collector's office is responsible for billing and collection of property taxes that support the four local governmental units: Atlantic County, Galloway Township Public School District, Greater Egg Harbor Regional School District and the Municipality of Galloway Township. Tax bills are typically issued in June and are payable quarterly on the first of August, November, February and May. Interest is added to tax bills after the 10th day of the month due. The Tax Collector enforces tax delinquencies through the tax sale process. Tax sales are accelerated in Galloway Township and are held usually in mid December for any existing current-year municipal delinquencies.  Galloway currently conducts its annual tax sale electronically.  More information is available at

The Tax Collector’s Office is also responsible for the billing and collection of rents for the municipal sewer utility.  Sewer bills are mailed every January and are due March 20th and September 20th.  There is also a 10 day grace period for sewer rents.  Therefore payments received after the 10 day grace period will be charged interest.

The Tax Collector’s Office is also responsible for the billing and collection of any Local Assessments.   Local assessments are billings for projects to only those taxpayers that benefit from the improvement.  For example when water mains are run down specific streets, the costs of the water mains are billed to those individuals that benefit from the improvement. 

The Tax Collector's Office also administers all property tax deductions, working in conjunction with the Tax Assessor's Office. Also available to the public is information pertaining to the various New Jersey State Tax reimbursement programs.



Payments are posted to their corresponding accounts when received.  The Township does not accept post dated checks.  Please make every effort to include your stub with your payment to ensure proper posting.  If you are unable to include your stub with your payment, please indicate on your check information (block/lot, account number, etc) that will provide the tax office the needed information to properly apply your payment.  Payments can be mailed to the tax office at, Township of Galloway, attn Tax Collector, 300 E Jimmie Leeds Road, Galloway, NJ 08205.  Payments can also be made electronically either at our website or at our office.  There are additional fees charged for making payments electronically.   Please note that once the tax sale process begins, all payments must be made with Certified Funds Only, which include; cash, cashier’s check or money order.



Interest is charged on all delinquent balances outstanding once the grace period expires.  Each year the Council is required to adopt a resolution defining the grace period.  According to New Jersey Statutes, the grace period cannot exceed 10 days.  Interest is charged back to its original due date on all delinquent balances.  The rate of interest charged is either eight or eighteen percent depending on the amount of the delinquent balance.  Balances up to $1,500 are charged eight percent and balances over $1,500 are charged eighteen percent.
