Auto Debit Payment
About Auto Debit
Paying taxes by auto debit (PDF) is convenient, secure and a free service to taxpayers. It features a registration process where a signed authorization allows the Tax Collector to debit quarterly taxes directly from the Taxpayers account on the 1st of every tax quarter (February 1st, May 1st, August 1st and November 1st) or the next available business day if the 1st falls on a weekend or Holiday.
After the initial registration process all the taxpayer has to do is to make sure the funds are available and to make the proper deduction from their checking or savings account register. If you would like an email reminder, please register for our email reminder service located on the Collector’s home page and the email reminder service will let you know that the tax quarter is coming up.
Registering for auto debit will be a one-time event, unless you need to make changes or want to stop the service. Registration forms are available in the Tax Collectors office and downloadable from the Collectors page on the Jackson Township website. Once completed and signed, enclose a void check or savings account deposit slip (with the savings account routing number also) and mail or bring to the Collectors office to start the service.
Account number or other changes, including stopping the Auto Debit service, must be submitted to the Tax Collectors office in writing. The same downloadable form is used for starting, changing or stopping service. Please allow for sufficient time to start, change or stop service prior to a tax quarter.
Note: When registering for Auto Debit the first time, and for any subsequent changes or cancellations, you will be provided with a confirmation in writing that we have received your information, processed your request and notified which tax quarter your request will start with.
No Confirmation of Service
If you do not receive this confirmation within 15 business days of submitting your request, you must contact our office to verify that your information was received and that your confirmation is in the process of being sent to you. The Township is not responsible for mailing delays or mail lost in transit to the Township. If your request has not been received by the Township, you will need to resubmit your information in order for your Auto Debit service to begin.
Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) at the time of the Auto Debit processing will result in an NSF fee of $20 and a request for payment by certified funds to replace the rejected attempt. A second auto debit will not be made to secure the funds.
