Hardyston no longer shares services for finance and tax collection with Borough of Franklin.  Both finance and tax collection are now located at the Hardyston Municipal Building. After a careful financial analysis and consideration of the Township’s needs the Council determined that it was in the best interest of the Township to establish an independent finance & tax collection office at the municipal building.  While the Township now has a shared service agreement with Sparta Township for a Chief Financial Officer, the remainder of the financial operations are located in the municipal building. In addition to the investment of Township funds, the Chief Finance Officer is also responsible for payment of Township vendors through the purchasing process and for Township payroll. The Tax Collector is responsible for the mailing of tax bills and subsequent collection of funds. The Tax Collector is also responsible for maintaining and monitoring a list of delinquent accounts and for the annual sale of tax title liens.The Council feels strongly that this is the best alternative. Township residents will now have the convenience of being able to handle all municipal related business in one location at a cost savings to the tax payer. In addition, having tax collection located in the same place as the tax assessor’s office will allow for more effective and timely communication between the two departments.

Please note that a drop box has been installed at the main entrance of the Municipal Building for your convenience.
