2015 Property Tax Reimbursement Forms will soon be mailed to seniors and disabled. In the past, we were able to fill out the portion of the form which verifies taxes paid immediately as you walked into the office. The Division of Taxation has changed the questions on the form so we will be unable to fill out the form immediately. Please bring your forms to the office, with the top portion filled out, and include your phone number and we will call you when it is completed so you can pick it up. You are also welcome to mail us the form or place it in the drop box in the parking lot, with the top portion filled out, and include a stamped, self-addressed envelope so that we can mail the completed form back to you.
