Status: Adopted

Amending Chapter § 250-7 Tax Collector to Include Tax Sale Notice Mailing Cost

WHEREAS, NJSA 54:5-19.1 authorizes electronic tax sales pursuant to rules and regulations to be promulgated by the Director of the Division of Government Services, and

WHEREAS, the rules and regulations require a municipality to send two (2) notices of tax sale to all properties included in said sale; and

WHEREAS, the rules and regulations allow said municipality to charge a fee of $25.00 per notice for the creation, printing and mailing of said notice; and

WHEREAS, in an effort to more fairly assign greater fiscal responsibility to delinquent taxpayers, the Township of Vernon wishes to charge $25.00 per notice mailed which will be assessed specifically to the delinquent accounts that are causing the need for a tax sale and not to the general tax base.

WHEREAS, the Township of Vernon wishes to participate in an electronic tax sale.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, by the Council of the Township of Vernon, that Chapter § 250-7 - Tax Collector of the Code of the Township of Vernon shall be amended to establish a fee of $25.00 per Tax Sale Notice and said fee is hereby authorized and directed to be charged for each notice of tax sale that is sent in conjunction with the electronic tax sale.
