deadline for residents to file their 2013 Senior Freeze (Property Tax
Reimbursement) applications has been extended to Sept. 15, 2014. The original
deadline was June 2, 2014.
Division of Taxation mailed 2013 Property Tax Reimbursement (PTR) applications
in February, and many eligible residents still need time to file. Those who are
eligible but have not yet filed can complete and mail their PTR applications
now. Reimbursement checks for eligible senior and disabled residents who file
their 2013 applications by the original June 2 deadline are scheduled to be
mailed in mid-July. Checks for eligible applicants who file 2013 applications
after June 2 will be processed and delivered as quickly as possible thereafter.
Senior Freeze (Property Tax Reimbursement) Program is distinct from the State's
other property tax relief programs, with its own eligibility requirements and
applications. Applicants can receive benefits under the Senior Freeze Program
and any of the State's other property tax relief programs for which they
qualify. However, the total amount of property tax relief benefits received
cannot exceed the amount of property taxes paid on their principal residence
for the same year.
