The State of New Jersey offers two programs. First is the Property Tax Reimbursement (Senior Freeze). This program is offered to residents that are over 65 years of age and meet the income requirements which change yearly. Taxes are “frozen” for the year an individual applies. Amounts paid over this “frozen” amount will be reimbursed by the State for the overpayment. The second program is the Homestead Rebate Program. This program is an income tax rebate which is applied to a resident’s property taxes. Depending on the resident’s income reported on their State Income tax and/or if the resident is over 65 years of age will determine their eligibility. More information and applications can be found on the State of New Jersey Website. www.State.NJ.US/Treasury/Taxation or by calling 1-800-882-6597.
