The officer conducting a tax sale shall collect and pay into the treasury of the municipality
a fee for all costs incurred by the municipality in holding the sale. The amount of the fee so paid shall be 2% of the existing lien as stated in R.S.54:5-19 and R.S.54:5-2, but not less than $15.00 and not more than $100.00 for each parcel listed. In the case of a standard tax sale, the fee shall be payable and collected beginning
the 50th calendar day prior to the date of the sale, and in the case of an accelerated
tax sale, the fee shall be payable and collected beginning on the 11th day of the
eleventh month of the current fiscal year. If unpaid prior to the tax sale, the fee shall form part of the tax lien and be paid by the purchaser at the tax sale.
