2020 Accelerated Online Tax Sale
In New Jersey, all municipalities are required to hold at least one tax sale per year. The properties on which liens are sold at the tax sale are those with delinquent property taxes and/or municipal charges. (Pursuant to N.J.S.A 54:5-19). The Township of Livingston will hold its annual online accelerated tax lien sale on Tuesday, December 29, 2020 at 8:30 AM.
The last day to pay 4th quarter taxes was November 10, 2020. All delinquencies as of the close of business on November 10, 2020, are now subject to the tax sale process.
Per this process, delinquencies will be subject to a 2% cost of tax sale (up to $100). In addition, delinquencies will be subject to a mailing fee of $25 for each mailing. Two mailings are scheduled during this process.
After November 10, 2020, the amount owed is calculated as follows:
Delinquent Taxes/Other Municipal Charges + Interest + Cost of Sale + Mailing Fees =
Total Amount Owed
To receive the exact amount owed, please contact the Tax Office at 973-992-5000 ext. #5121, #5122, #5123, or #5124, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All payments received after November 14, 2020 MUST be made using guaranteed funds: cash, cashier’s check or money order. Any other forms of payment WILL NOT be accepted. All other checks -- attorney, business, lender and personal – WILL be returned. In addition, the credit/debit card payment options WILL NOT be available after November 12, 2020.
The statute also requires a Public Notice of Tax Sale. If payment is not received by November 25, 2020, the property owner’s name will appear in this Public Notice.
Note: Failure of the property owner to receive a notice of tax sale properly mailed by the Tax Collector shall not constitute grounds to void the subsequent tax sale.
