"Senior Freeze" Tax Relief deadline extended to September 16, 2013:
The application deadline for New Jersey's "senior freeze" property tax relief program has been pushed back several months to ensure all qualified seniors have time to seek their benefits. The new deadline for the Property Tax Reimbursement Program, commonly referred to as "senior freeze" is now September 16, 2013.
The State of New Jersey has decided not to pay the Homestead Rebate credit for the May 2013 property tax bills. The rebate credit will be sent to the towns for the August 2013 property tax bill instead. You must use the May bill that was previously sent to you as part of the Final 2012/Preliminary 2013 bill. Your credit will appear on the 3rd quarter of the Final 2013/Preliminary 2014 bill.Click here to see Details of Important Notices
