Property Tax Reimbursement ("Senior Freeze" Program):
The State funded PTR program reimburses qualified applicants for the property tax increases they may incur each year from the base year. The base year is the first year an applicant meets eligibility requirements. It is important to understand the taxpayer pays the taxes as they come due and then the increase is reimbursed the following year. The deadline to submit the 2015 PTR applications was October 17, 2016. For updated information on changes to the Senior Freeze Program for 2015, check the Division of Taxation's website @ http://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/ptr/index.shtml.
Homestead Benefit Program:
The filing deadline for 2014 Homestead Benefit Applications was December 31, 2016. Homestead benefits for 2014 are anticipated they will get applied to May 2017 property tax bills. Additional information on the 2014 homestead benefit will be posted when it becomes available.
