Brick residents whose property tax bill exceed $10,000 have one more day to pre-pay their 2018 bill in anticipation of new federal tax policy.

Come 2018, the amount of property taxes that can be deducted from a homeowner’s federal income tax return will capped at $10,000. But if the bill is paid before 2018 begins, the full amount can be deducted from the 2017 return.

The highest residential property tax bill in all of Brick is $110,032 – an estate on Princeton Avenue. A Brick resident’s average tax bill is $6,264, according to state records. The Nationally, the average homeowner pays $3,028 in property taxes.

“Our tax collector’s office has been busy due to the significant number of residents who are going to be impacted by the new law that caps the amount of local taxes that can be deducted,” said Mayor Ducey, in a statement.  “We want to make sure any residents concerned about the impact know that the clock is ticking on prepaying your taxes.”

The collector’s office will be open until 4 p.m. Friday. Payments now must be made in person, since online payments made Friday will be processed after the new year.

    However you can MAIL your payment in AND as long as it is Postmarked before Jan 1st It will be Counted for 2017.

      However, the IRS makes the rules regarding this deduction, and not Christie’s EO! These payments, whether made in person or mailed with a pre-1/1 postmark may or may not be applicable for the deduction.

        True that!

      • suzie

        That is only true If your town had not billed you. Brick sent out 2018 Tax bills so pre-paying will be applicable for a deduction.

  • Surfrider

    Hard to believe that the average in Brick is only $6,264? With this new cap on property tax, we need new blood in government to try and cut back all the waste, and services we cannot afford. Then, maybe, our taxes can start rolling back, because home
    values are going to start trickling down because of this, and we have to keep the crooks over in the municipal building tax office from raising the tax ratable………Oh and they are applicable, providing on your residence.

      Third party blood. An Independent.

    • suzie

      Your right we do need NEW blood in government but if u want taxes to roll back we Need Trump OUT-oh that’s right you are the same idiot who thinks Trump made the Stock Market go up-Wise up-he had nothing to do with it…he’s just taking the credit for it.

        You are such a fool, and show it with every post. Just like some other ‘idiots’ who can only call names to legit comments, rather than show why you think you know what you are talking about……everyone knows it as well…go back into your swamp…..

  • KaayC

    So we pay double the national average tax but can’t buy leaf vacuums? We also have no sidewalks, no street lamps, a volunteer fire department, and very old schools so wth? Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining.

  • KaayC

    You miss the point J. The Democratic Governor has promised to raise taxes as well. We need an Independent not more of the same BS. Thats what the Trumpsters thought they voted in. In the words of Gomer Pyle, “Surprise, surprise, surprise.”

  • Surfrider

    Ha, and crooked hillary would have been better? Would love to take an intelligence test with you……..Stock Market doing great ever since the Trumpster took office, I’m doing great…You should recognize the progress made so far and hop on the Trump train….Help us make America great again ……..or just hang around being more muck in the swamp…….

  • KaayC

    Lol J I am not arguing; in point of fact the governor elect has PROMISED to raise taxes in order to meet pension obligations from monies “borrowed” ( read stolen?) by Christie Whitman administration. You got mad at me when I told you I saw that Hillary just was not resonating with the rank-and-file benched for too long, blue collar workers. ( The union ps ostensibly supported Hillary, but not the rank and file.) We all know what happened then. I am just a canary in the mine. This lil chickadee says its time for an independent. Oh and I also maintain, if Hillary had embraced Bernie as a running-mate instead of having him cut off at the knees I believe she would have waltzed off with the election. Some dirty pool went down there in Philly and that little filly got her comeuppance. Now we have to deal with Trumpster. The middle-class always lose. It could be worse. We could be in Puerto Rico.

    Yah I hear what you are saying but we do not elect presidents by popular vote. Had that been the case, Al Gore would have been president; George Bush stole that election fair and square. I wonder if the planet would be in better shape ( fewer wildfires, hurricanes etc.) had he been elected and able to implement an environmental agenda. Bush was an inconvenient president IMHO.

    Which is why the end of net neutrality is a big deal. We can agree it is all one big mess.

    I can see you are doing your drugs again, making absolutely no sense, making comments about things you know nothing about, I spent 6 years in the marines during Nam and love my country, what have you done for your country ….nothing….What else do you know? You just reply to show the poison in your body for anyone who does not think like you…. then make silly adolescent comments. Obama was the one who bows to the enemy, if you wanna speak the truth! Hey now its your turn to put up with someone you do not like, like many of us had to do when your apparent choice was in. How is your obamrama care? Did you sign up for it? Really great program, forcing people to take insurance they did not want, and costs kept rising that people could not afford.,,,facts dude….ready to implode, until the Trumpeter took over….Drain the swamp in Washington!!! Go Trump! I’m loving it! Too bad…And am I loving the stock market?! o yeaaaa!
