Payment Application and late payment

Late payments are charged interest & penalty at a rate of 1.25% on the first day of default and the first day of each month thereafter until paid.

For payments mailed to the Township, the payment must be received on or before the due date to avoid penalties.

All payments are applied to penalty and interest first.
