Delinquent Taxes & Sewer Charges

The 2022 tax sale for 2021 delinquent taxes is scheduled to take place on Thursday, November 17, 2022 at 10:00 am and is published in the Ridgewood News for four consecutive weeks prior to the tax sale.  The tax sale will be held in the Wyckoff Memorial Town Hall, Municipal Court Room, 340 Franklin Avenue.

New Jersey Law, N.J.S.A. 54:51.1 et seq, " The Tax Sale Law", requires all delinquent property taxes and other municipal charges (such as sewer charges) be sold at a public sale annually.  At this sale, an interested party will bid to "purchase" a tax sale certificate on the property.  Once a tax sale certificate is issued, the purchaser holds a lien against the property.  The property owner has up to two years to redeem the tax sale certificate.  There are additional costs, interest, and penalties to redeem.  If the certificate is not redeemed within two years, the lien holder may foreclose on the property.
