CLARK, NJ – The State of New Jersey has mailed notices to all households from the Division of Taxation with filing information and an application for the 2019 ANCHOR property tax relief program. (Affordable New Jersey Communities for Homeowners and Renters).  

 

The ANCHOR program replaces the Homestead Benefit program and expands the amount of property tax relief while also boosting eligibility to twice as many homeowners, and includes tenants renting their homes. 

 

The Division of Taxation will be emailing ANCHOR program filing information to homeowners who had requested their application be sent through email when they filed their 2018 Homestead Benefit application at the same time the physical mailers are sent out.

 

New Jersey officials began sending mailers to tenants and homeowners in Union County on September 26.   

 

To be eligible, homeowners must have:

  •  Been a New Jersey resident; and
  • Owned and occupied a home in New Jersey that was their principal residence (main home) on
  •  October 1, 2019; and 
  • Paid the 2019 property taxes on their main home; and 
  • Had 2019 New Jersey gross income of not more than $250,000.

 

 To be eligible, tenants must have:

  •  Been a New Jersey resident; and
  •  Rented and occupied an apartment or residence in New Jersey that was their principal residence
  •  (main home) on October 1, 2019; and 
  • Lived in a unit with its own separate kitchen and bath facilities (if the building had more
  •  than one dwelling unit); and 
  • Paid rent on their main home, which was subject to local property taxes; and
  •  Had 2019 New Jersey gross income of not more than $150,000.
