The Division of Local Government Services has issued Local Finance Notice 2018-17 summarizing certain local government-related laws recently enacted. The notice includes information on laws such as Equal Pay and Dedicated Prepayment of Property Taxes.

In regards to the Dedicated Prepayment of Property Taxes, the Division advises that if a municipality wishes to allow taxpayers the option to apply the excess taxes towards subsequent property tax payments in lieu of a refund, the municipality should adopt a resolution expressly permitting taxpayers to do so upon written request to the tax collector. 

In addition, the Local Finance Notice includes a model notice for P.L. 2017, c. 266, which permits the creation of a special assistance list for public safety purposes, and the required ballot language for P.L. 2017, c. 260, which permits a public question to increase in the free public library tax.
