Manalapan Township is pleased to announce for the convenience of the residents, property taxes may now be viewed and paid on-line 24 hours a day 7 days a week. With the new Web Inquiry and Payment Portal (WIPP) program residents can make payments by credit card, debit card, or check. Fees are associated with the on-line payments to avoid increases to the municipal budget. It is important to note that the fees retained are paid to the service provider and are not paid to or shared with the Township.
To access the WIPP program, visit Manalapan Township’s website at www.mtnj.org and look under Community News. Just follow the links. The program is very user friendly.
A computer will soon be available in town hall for residents without access to a computer at home. The new program is another convenient option for residents to pay property taxes. Among others include, a drop box in town hall that is open from 7am to 8pm Monday through Friday, and 7am to 3pm on Saturday.
The WIPP program will also allow access to realtors, banks, lawyers and mortgage companies to check information such as assessment of properties and whether there are any outstanding back taxes due.
The Township’s tax bills were mailed out August 13, 2011. The grace period will be extended to September 9th. All payments received after that date will incur interest calculated back to 8/1/11 in accordance with State Statues and Township Resolution.
