Note of Advice: If your bringing your tax payment in try to avoid Tuesdays since we hear from our taxpayers that there is no parking available, because Mt. Laurel holds Court on Tuesdays.


Paying your taxes in the year they are due not only avoids a Lien on your property but keeps the Reserve For Uncollected Taxes at a minimal. That relates to keeping the Local Purpose Tax Stable.
