Senior Freeze (Property Tax Reimbursement) Checks Mailed

 

The Division of Taxation has begun to mail 2014 Senior Freeze (Property Tax Reimbursement) checks to applicants who filed by the original deadline of June 1, 2015.

Keep in mind that the deadline has been extended for 2014 applications to Oct. 15, 2015.

The application booklets are Blue in color.  Initial applications can be obtained from the Tax Collector’s office at the municipal building, 23A North Main Street Cranbury, NJ 08512.

New income guidelines not stated in the application are as follows: 
Only applicants whose 2014 income did not exceed $70,000 are eligible to receive a reimbursement payment, provided they met all the other requirements. That means residents whose income was between $70,001 and $85,553 will not receive checks for 2014. The Division is notifing those applicants that they are not eligible. Those residents can establish a “base year” for future reimbursements for which they may be eligible by filing an application by the due date. This also ensures that the Division will mail them applications for 2015.

Homeowners who have not yet filed applications or received a notice from the Division about deficiencies in their application may direct questions to the Tax Collector’s office  at 609-664-3132 and tjohns@cranbury-nj.com  or contact the Division of Taxation directly at 1-800-882-6597 (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday–Friday, except State holidays).
