As soon as we receive the certified rates we will proceed with our billing process. The 3rd quarter is still technically due August 1, 2018 but the grace period will be extended to 25 days from the date the bills are mailed by the tax office. Please note that the mailing date is key date, not the date that you night receive your bill.

At this time, these tax bills will also become available on our secure online payment system at this link.


Preservation Options

There are several methods for land preservation that can be utilized, depending on the the landowners wishes and the best use of the property. The Township is willing to work with anyone interested in preservation in determining if the property in question is eligible for preservation, and provide guidance in the best vehicle of preservation for the property. 

Preservation offers many benefits to the landowner and the community, such as: 
*The landowner may be able to reap significant tax benefits when a "bargain sale" is completed.

*In an easement purchase, the landowner retains fee-simple ownership of the land, meaning that they can continue living on the property, or sell it at a reduced price in the future 

*Landowners can also sell the property fee-simple to the Township, with the Township paying most of due-diligence costs associated with the transaction

The community benefits from lands that are kept in their natural state, preserved as farmland or used for recreational purposes  
Franklin Township is always looking for ways to expand our existing trail network, provide recreational spaces and opportunities for our residents, enhance the agricultural industry and encourage healthier physical and mental lifestyles through nature. If you are interested in potential preservation, please contact Tara Kenyon, Land Preservation and Management Consultant, at or (732) 873-2500 x6279.

We look forward to working with you!
