How is my 3rd quarter tax bill calculated?
First half billing (February and May) is half of the prior year tax as an estimate going forward each year. Millburn Township estimates a tax rate to bill the third quarter taxes as Essex County does not have their budget complete at this time. Once we have a certified tax rate from the County we calculate the actual taxes for the year, subtract the first three quarters and reconcile in the fourth quarter. All County Board tax appeals are processed as credits to the fourth quarter once the judgments are received. The first half of 2018 will be half of the 2017 total taxes and the billing cycle starts over again. Contact the Tax office if you require further clarification and ask for Jessica or Lynne.
