Lumberton Township allows a ten (10) day grace period for each quarter. If the 10th is a weekend or recognized holiday, the grace period will be extended to the next business day. If payment is not received by the end of the grace period, interest reverts back to the original due date.
Tax Time E-Mail Reminder:
Because taxes are due quarterly but billed just once a year, an e-mail reminder mailing list has been created. If you have not yet signed up for this service and would like to receive a quarterly reminder that taxes are due, send an e-mail to email@example.com including your name, the property location in Lumberton that you own and your e-mail address.
