Payment Options


You can pay property taxes more frequently than the two installments.  Our system is capable of receiving tax payments weekly, monthly, quarterly or whatever way accommodates your budget, as long as the taxes are paid in full by the due dates.

Postdated checks or other checks not meeting the requirements will be returned and penalties will be added if applicable.  All checks returned by the bank for any reason will cause the payment and receipt to be voided and delinquent penalties will be added. 

The Town of Morristown offers various options for paying your property tax bill:

  • In person: Personally pay your property taxes at the Town Clerk/Treasurer Office during office hours: Monday - Thursday 8:00-4:00, Friday 8:00-1:00.
