Now Law: Bill Extending Deadline To Apply For Senior Freeze Property Tax Rebates

Assembly Majority Office - 1/18/2018

The law (A-3466) requires that applications for participation in the homestead property tax reimbursement program, colloquially known as the "senior freeze" program, be filed with the director of the Division of Taxation in the Department of the Treasury between April 1 and October 31 of the year following the year for which the claim is being made. Under current law, the deadline is June 1 of the following year.

"With a longer application period, more senior citizens and disabled individuals who may be eligible to participate in this property tax relief program can apply for a rebate," said Mukherji (D-Hudson). "This legislation will help New Jersey residents who tend to be the hardest hit by property taxes."
