Senior Freeze Program

Deadline for 2017 Senior Freeze Application is October 31, 2018

New Jersey's "Senior Freeze" (Property Tax Reimbursement) program is available for those 65 and over as of December 31, 2016, who meet all of the criteria.

File your application by October 31, 2018.

The Senior Freeze program reimburses senior citizens and disabled persons for Property Tax increases. For applicants who met all the eligibility requirements for 2016 and again for 2017, the amount of the reimbursement will be the difference between the amount of Property Taxes that were due and paid by the applicant for 2016 and the amount of property Taxes that were due and paid for 2017, as long as the amount paid for 2017 was greater than the amount paid for 2016. 

For more information, call 1-800-882-6597.

See the 2017 Form PTR-1, for applicants who did not receive a 2016 Senior Freeze
