Taxes for 2022 are due FEBRUARY 1ST & MAY 1ST, both with a 10 day grace period. The bills for 2022 February & May were mailed in October 2021 on the same yellow bill as the 2021 4th quarter stub (which was due November 2021).  

If you cannot locate your tax bill, please feel free to go to our website www.trentonnj.org/taxpayments to print out a tax bill for your use (or to remit payments).  

The total amount of taxes for the year 2021 is also on that same yellow tax bill, sent in October 2021.  We DO NOT mail a separate statement of taxes paid in 2021.
