The Barnegat Tax Department handles all billing and account maintenance. If you are purchasing a home, check with whomever is handling your closing as that may be part of the closing process. If not, please call the Tax Department at 609-698-0080 to inquire.
You can pay your bill either in person at the Township Tax Office or online by clicking “”Pay Your Bill” on our homepage or the Barnegat Township’s homepage. Personal checks, Visa & Master Card are accepted or you can arrange for direct-deposit with the Tax Office. (Please note that all billing transactions are handled through the Tax Office so any inquiries must be directed to them.)
