2006 Homestead Rebate and Senior Freeze Deadline Extension

June 1, 2007


From the NJ Department of Local Government Services...


The deadline for senior and disabled homeowners to file their 2006 homestead rebate applications has been extended from June 1, 2007 to August 15, 2007.  The deadline for filing 2006 Senior Freeze (Property Tax Reimbursement) applications has also been extended to August 15 from the original June 1 due date.

The homestead rebate application deadline has also been extended for all eligible tenants, whether they are seniors or disabled or not. The tenant rebate application (Form TR-1040), which is filed with the applicants New Jersey income tax return, was due on April 17, 2007.  For taxpayers who have already filed their 2006 New Jersey income tax returns, but did not complete the tenant rebate application even though they are eligible, the new filing deadline is August 15.  Tenants who are not required to file a New Jersey income tax return, or who are filing their return under extension can still file only Form TR-1040 to apply for a homestead rebate, and have until October 31 to do so.

Because of the time needed to process both the homeowner rebate and Senior Freeze applications, eligible applicants who file applications for either of these benefits after the original June 1 deadline may not receive their checks in the initial mailings.  The Senior Freeze checks are currently scheduled to be mailed mid-July and the homestead rebate checks for senior and disabled homeowners are currently scheduled to be mailed in early August.  Checks for applicants who file between June 1st and August 15 will be issued as quickly as possible.  Homestead rebate checks for tenants are also scheduled to be mailed in early August.
