Pay Taxes Using Direct Debit

Paying taxes by auto debit is a convenient, secure, and free service to taxpayers. It features a registration process where a signed authorization allows the tax collector to debit quarterly taxes directly from the taxpayer's checking account every tax quarter (February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1). Should the first day of a quarter fall on a holiday or weekend, the transfer will occur on the first business day the office is open for the quarterly payments.

After the initial registration process, you will receive an email reminder one week prior to the auto debit. All you will need to do is make sure the funds are available in your account and make proper entries in your checking account register.

Registering for Auto Debit
To register for auto debit, you will need to fill out an authorization form. This will be a one-time event unless you need to make changes or stop the service. This form is available on this website or by contacting the Tax Collector's Office. Once completed, please return this form with a voided check to the Tax Collector's Office by mail or in person. Please allow for sufficient time to start, change, or stop service prior to the tax quarter.

When registering for auto debit for the first time, or for any subsequent changes or cancellations, we will provide you with a confirmation in writing that we have received and processed your request, as well as indicate which tax quarter the request will take effect.

If you do not receive this notice within 10 days of submitting your request, you must contact our office to verify your information was received and your confirmation is on its way. The City of Millville is not responsible for mail lost in transit to or from the city, or for mailing delays.

Non-Sufficient Funds
Should the funds not be available at the time your payment is processed, a $20 NSF fee will be added to your tax account, and a request for payment of certified funds will be mailed to you, as we will not issue a second attempt to secure the funds.

The City of Millville is not responsible for any overdraft fees or other charges imposed by the banking institution as a result of this service. The taxpayer will be responsible for all fees in connection with the transaction or cancellation thereof in connection with this agreement.

Forms must be received at least 10 days prior to the quarterly due date to be included in auto debit. If submitting the form, and your payment is due in under 10 days, please provide payment with your form, and auto debit will commence on the next scheduled quarter.
