Board of Supervisors Vote to Extend Penalties on Tax Bills

Gloucester taxpayers will have an extra month to pay their real estate and personal property tax bills. The Gloucester County Board of Supervisors held a special called meeting on Monday, June 21 and voted unanimously to delay the assessment and accrual of penalty and interest on the first installment tax bills until after August 2, 2021.

The meeting was called after the mailing of the tax bills was delayed due to utilization of new tax software.
