Senior Freeze Rebate Program Extended to 12-31-20

Posted on October 27, 2020

Senior Freeze Rebate Program has been extended until December 31, 2020.  The deadline extension allows seniors more time to get a certification from the municipal tax collector that property taxes on the property were paid.

The Senior Freeze Rebate Program is designed to freeze the burden of increasing real estate taxes for qualified applicants by establishing a base year of eligibility and comparing that “base” with any subsequent year, the difference to be refunded by the State annually.  Eligibility must be continuous otherwise a new base year must be established.

For those that have already applied for this rebate, checks began going out October 15, 2020.  Anyone who is uncertain of the status of their existing application can call the NJ Senior Freeze Hotline at 1-800-882-6597.
