HOMESTEAD REBATE CREDITS

2016 Homestead Rebate credits have been applied to 2nd quarter taxes for those who qualify.   If you pay your taxes yourself, you will receive the adjusted bill in the mail next week.  Please use that new bill to determine what is due on May 1st.  If your taxes are paid by your mortgage company, your mortgage company will receive the adjusted bill and you will receive an “advice” copy in the mail for your records.

PROPERTY TAX REIMBURSEMENT FORMS (SENIOR FREEZE)

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.
