Working under the statutes of the State of New Jersey, and the ordinances of the Borough of Franklin Lakes, it is the duty of the Tax Collector’s office to bill, collect, enforce and provide reports on the taxes levied by the Borough, Board of Education – both district and regional, County, Library & Open Space. The Collector is responsible for collecting all current and delinquent property taxes with interest and penalties. It is our mission to fulfill the duties of this office to the best of our abilities, to educate the residents on the tax collection process, and to assist the Senior Citizens of our Borough in the application and completion of state-mandated forms for tax reduction programs. As part of this mission, the Collector’s intent is that every payment received will be posted to the respective property on the day it is received.
