*If your income for 2013 did not exceed $70,000, you are eligible for a 2013 reimbursement provided you met all the other program requirements. If your income was more than $70,000 but was $84,289 or less, you will not receive a check for 2013. The Division will notify you that you are not eligible. However, by filing an application by the due date, you can establish a “base year” for future reimbursements for which you may be eligible and ensure you will be mailed an application for 2014.
