[ARCHIVED] Standard Tax Sale to be held October 21

2022 Announcement of Tax Sale on October 21, 2022

Standard 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 online tax lien sale on Friday, October 21, 2022 at 8:30 AM.  

All delinquencies as of the close of business on September 6, 2022, are now subject to the tax sale process. 

Calculating the Amount Owed

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 September 6, 2022, 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

All payments received now, after September 6, 2022 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. The credit/debit card payment options are not available now that September 6, 2022 has passed. 

The statute also requires a Public Notice of Tax Sale. If payment has not been received by September 19, 2022, 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 does not constitute grounds to void the subsequent tax sale.
