Please check to see if you are coded for a mortgage company on your tax bill. If you have an escrow account and this tax bill is coded with a number in the box marked “Bank Number” this means your mortgage company has requested a copy of your tax bill, and we have provided an extra copy to them. If there is no number in that box, your bill has not been sent to your mortgage company. Therefore, enclose one copy of this tax bill with your next mortgage payment. Always verify that your taxes were paid either by contracting your mortgage company or the township to verify that the taxes have been paid.
Checks are accepted only as conditional payment of taxes. If the check is not honored by the bank, the tax is considered unpaid and will be restored to the tax roll without further notice. A service charge may be applied to checks returned from the bank. Failure to send or receive such notice shall not in any way prejudice the right to collect or enforce the payment of any tax.
