Tax Collector

Our Mission

The mission of the Tax Collectors Office is to adhere to the responsibilities of billing, collection, reporting and enforcement of property taxes and other municipal charges such as water/sewer utility payments — while providing a warm & friendly atmosphere for the residents & tax payers of the Borough of Roseland.

Property tax bills are mailed out once a year with stubs for each quarter of the year.  Bills usually are sent out over the summer once the new tax rate has been officially approved. The new bills will cover the 3rd and 4th quarter of the current year and the 1st and 2nd quarter of the following year.

The 1st Quarter lasts from January through March with payment due by February 1. The 2nd Quarter lasts from April through June with payment due by May 1st. The 3rd Quarter lasts from July through September with payment due by August 1. The 4th Quarter lasts from October to December with payment due by November 1. There is a 10 day grace period for payments. If Borough Hall is closed on the 10th day of the grace period (due to weekend or holiday), they will be due the next business day. 

Amounts owed can be found and paid online at the Borough website by going to and clicking the Online Bill Pay button.  Please note that non partial payments are accepted online. Bills can also be paid at Borough Hall during business hours.
