Township Manager Nicholas Steiner said he spoke to Portnoff Law Associates to handle delinquent real estate tax collection for the municipality.
“He explained to me that the county is really limited in what they can and cannot do with real estate tax collection,” Steiner said. “So instead of the county collecting on behalf of the municipality, they would collect them on our behalf. State law gives them additional tools to receive that money quicker as well as to pass it onto us. The idea is to get the money to us quicker and frankly it sounds better for the residents because they may not even know they are delinquent because of how the process is.”
The next Board of Supervisors meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Feb. 4 at the Moore Township Municipal building.
