Online Tax and Water-Sewer Payment Convenience Fees

Credit Card and E-Check payments can only be made via the internet and convenience fees are charged to the user for each transaction. 

  • If you have the funds in your checking account, the fee for using an e-check is a flat $1.95 per transaction.
  • If you are using a credit or debit card the fee is 2.95% of the transaction amount.

Please note that the fee for using a debit card is the same fee as using a credit card. Convenience fees are retained by the service provider and are not paid to, or shared with, the Borough of Keyport.


The interest listed on delinquent amounts is calculated to today’s date. Interest must be paid in full and will be deducted first before any monies are applied to taxes or water/sewer. Once interest is deducted, monies will be applied to the oldest balance first. Please contact our office to obtain interest calculations for a future date.

Tax and Water-Sewer Account Lookup Disclaimer

Tax and Water-Sewer account lookup is for informational purposes only and does not constitute a municipal tax search.  Account information is subject to updates, corrections and reversals. The Borough of Keyport is not responsible for erroneous interpretation of the records or for changes made after the lookup.

Assessment Values

The assessment values that appear on the Tax Account lookup section are from the last update to the Assessor's records, which only occurs twice per year, and may not reflect the assessed value on the Assessor’s records. Please keep in mind that the Assessor’s records are always one year ahead of the current year.

Municipal and Third Party Liens

Municipal and Third Party Tax and Water-Sewer liens CANNOT be paid online. All redemptions of liens must be made through the tax office with certified funds, such as a certified check, money order or cash. Redemption figures must be requested by letter and the letter must include a date of payment. Redemption figures may take three (3) or more business days to provide.

Online Tax and Water-Sewer accounts with Third party tax liens may report the accounts as paid, however, the accounts may have been paid by the Lien Holder and are still due as part of the third party lien. Municipal liens may also report Tax and Water-Sewer accounts as paid, however the accounts may have been transferred to the Lien Holder and are still due as part of the Municipal lien.

Properties in Bankruptcy

Tax and Water/Sewer accounts that have an open balance at the time of the bankruptcy filing may have those balances transferred to a special charges account. Any taxes and water/sewer charges transferred to a special charges account will appear paid on the regular tax and water/sewer account, but will still be due and owing under special charges. Properties in bankruptcy cannot be paid online.

Special Charges Accounts

Special Charges accounts contain balances that are due in addition to the regular accounts. This is from either bankruptcies or “catch-up” water/sewer bills, etc. Please contact this office at 732-739-3900 ext. 5271 to obtain further information on accounts that are noted having special charges.


Once taxes and/or water-sewer charges are paid online, refunds will not be permitted. If monies result in an over-payment of taxes, please contact this office for assistance. Please make sure you are paying on the correct account prior to making the payment.
