Homestead Benefit Program

If you filed for a 2017 Homestead Credit by December 2, 2019 and were eligible, the State has announced that the homestead credits that were subject to be deducted/credited from your 2020 2nd Qtr. taxes due May 1, 2020 have been postponed due to the following: “In light of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, the State has placed funding for Homestead Credits in reserve to meet emergency and statutorily obligations.”  Please pay your 2nd Qtr. tax bill 2020 as reflected and mailed out to all around mid-late Sept. of 2019.

The Division of Taxation mailed out applications for the 2019 Senior Freeze Program (Property Tax Reimbursement) to senior citizens and disabled residents who may be eligible for the program. The deadline for filing applications is November 2, 2020.

Note: The unprecedented impact COVID-19 has had on the economy has forced the state to freeze funding for many worthy programs, including Senior Freeze, and prompted the extension of the budget deadline from June 30 to September 30. Therefore, funding for Senior Freeze reimbursements that typically occur during mid-summer is unavailable at this time. Please check back here again in early October for possible updates.
