NJ Saver Rebate Filing Deadline Near
(TRENTON) - State Treasurer John E. McCormac today reminded New Jersey homeowners that they have until next week to file their 2002 NJ SAVER rebate applications. The filing deadline is July 15, 2003.
Treasurer noted that of the 1.8 million applications mailed out during
May, approximately 80 percent have been completed and filed with the
Division of Taxation. New Jersey residents who owned a home as their
principal residence on October 1, 2002, and paid property taxes on that
home are eligible for the 2002 NJ SAVER rebate.
NJ SAVER rebate checks are scheduled to be mailed to all eligible applicants on or before September 15, 2003. Homeowners who are eligible for both the homestead rebate and the NJ SAVER rebate will receive whichever provides the greater benefit in their individual case. Qualified homeowners who filed a homestead rebate application with their income tax return earlier this year should be sure to file their NJ SAVER rebate application as well. "A homeowner who files applications for both programs can be sure that they will receive the maximum property tax relief benefit for which they are eligible," said McCormac.
who haven't filed yet can do so by calling 1-877-658-2972. They can
also file online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at www.njsaverrebate.com
