FREEHOLD— It’s time for the Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners’ 2023 Monmouth County Spring Surplus Auction.

This year, the event will be held on Saturday, March 25 at 9 a.m. and will conclude on Tuesday, March 28 at 6 p.m.

Items for sale may be inspected for sale on Monday, March 27 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. and on Tuesday, March 28, by appointment only. To schedule an appointment at the Monmouth County Public Works and Engineering Complex at 250 Center Street, Freehold, please contact Mark Pajor at 732-431-7290 ext. 7299.

“By continuing to offer the spring and fall surplus auctions online, the County is able to serve more participants and receive bids from other states, which can generate more revenue for the County,” said Commissioner Director Thomas Arnone, liaison to the Department of Public Works and Engineering.

Vehicles, equipment, and other items that are no longer needed by the county will be available for bidding. A full list of the auction items, with pictures, descriptions, and terms of sale, will be posted here.

All bidders must preregister with the auctioneer, here.

Successful bidders will be able to pick up their item(s) between March 30-31, except on weekends and holidays, between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. by appointment only.

Those who do not pick up their items at the County’s Public Works Complex by 3:30 p.m. on Friday, March 31 will be liable for storage fees equal to 2% of the sale price per business day or $25 per business day, whichever is greater, until the merchandise is picked up, for up to 10 business days.

Monmouth County began the online surplus auctions in 2008, and to date, has generated more than $2 million, which is a direct saving for taxpayers, said Commissioner Deputy Director Nick DiRocco.

Weird things NJ taxes - and some they don't

In general, New Jersey assesses a 6.625% Sales Tax on sales of most tangible personal property, specified digital products, and certain services unless specifically exempt under New Jersey law.
However, the way the sales tax is applied in New Jersey sometimes just doesn't make sense.
New Jersey puts out an itemized list for retailers that spells out what is, and what is not, taxed. 
Perhaps because this is New Jersey, there are some bizarre and seemingly contradictory listings.
