New Jersey

Program Overview

There are four property tax relief programs in New Jersey: Two for senior citizens and two for veterans.

The Senior Freeze Program reimburses eligible senior citizens and disabled persons for property tax or mobile home park site fee increases on their principal residence. The Property Tax Deduction for Senior Citizens or Disabled Persons is an annual deduction, up to $250, from property taxes for homeowners 65 or older or disabled who meet certain income and residency requirements.

The Annual Deduction for Veterans, up to $250 from property taxes due, is for qualified war veterans or a veteran who served in peacekeeping missions and operations, and is available to a surviving spouse/civil union/domestic partner who has not remarried. The Property Tax Exemption for Disabled Veterans allows for full exemption from property taxes on a principal residence for certain totally and permanently disabled war veterans and veterans who served in peacekeeping missions and operations. This exemption also is available to a surviving spouse, civil union or domestic partner who has not remarried.
