Waldwick June 17, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 11 Waldwick residents will be getting estimated tax bills for the third billing quarter again this year. The measure is due to the late adoption of the state budget and the fact that the borough has yet to receive state aid figures as well as county tax rates. Without a definitive tax rate certified by the Bergen County Board of Taxation, Waldwick’s tax collector would be unable to mail the borough’s 2009 tax bills on a timely manner. The entire estimated tax levy for 2009 has been set at $34,917,807.44. Borough Administrator Gary Kratz told the mayor and council last week that Residents to get estimated tax bills for third quarter any adjustments, which are expected to be minor, would be made in the fourth quarter billing. “It worked well last year,” said Councilwoman Anita Bozzo, who chairs the council’s Financial and Administrative Committee. “This (estimated bills) costs too, but it costs less than the BANS,” she added. In previous years when there was a delay in receiving state figures, the borough was forced to issue bond anticipation notes (BANS). This allowed for timely payment of school taxes to the board of education as well as funds to meet the borough’s own obligations, according to Bozzo. The bills will reflect a tax increase 6 cents per $100 of assessed valuation, or $249.60 on a house assessed at $416,000, the borough’s average. Kratz explained that residents would receive a tax bill with only one coupon, due on Aug. 1. No interest will be charged until Aug. 5 or the 25th calendar day after the estimated tax bills are mailed, whichever is later. In September, taxpayers will receive the adjusted coupon for the third quarter, and the coupons for the estimated first two quarters of 2010. The estimated tax bills will be mailed before the end of June, he said.
