Dear Fellow Taxpayer,

Estimated 2023/2024 tax bills were mailed to all taxpayers on June 22, 2023. Final bills will be mailed after the State of New Jersey budget is adopted by the Legislature and signed by the Governor.

The Chester Borough budget increased 1.94%, and the tax rate remained the same. The Borough is the collection agency for the Library Tax, Chester School District Tax, West Morris Regional High School District Tax, Local Open Space Tax and Morris County Tax. The chart below provides a glimpse of the approved budgets for each of these entities. To read the entire letter CLICK HERE.
