Applying Payments toward Delinquencies - 05/12/2016

Local Finance Notice 2016-09 formalizes long-established DLGS guidance on applying payments toward delinquent property taxes and municipal charges.  The Notice states that when a taxpayer makes payment toward a delinquency, the payment must first be applied to interest.  Once all accrued interest is extinguished, any remaining payment shall be applied toward principal starting from oldest delinquency forward.  Recent legislation pertaining to cancelling delinquent municipal charges and fees under ten dollars is also discussed.
