Check the Status (Amount) of Your Property Tax Reimbursement
This program reimburses eligible senior citizens and disabled persons for property tax or mobile home park site fee increases on their principal residence. To qualify you must meet all the eligibility requirements for each year from the base year through the application year. (The current year is 2015.)
Reimbursement Checks. The Division will mail reimbursement checks to eligible seniors and disabled residents who file their 2015 applications by the original June 1 deadline on July 15th. Checks for eligible applicants who file 2015 applications after June 1 will be processed and delivered as quickly as possible thereafter.
Note: The amount appropriated in the State Budget for property tax relief programs affected reimbursement payments for 2015. Applicants are eligible for 2015 reimbursement payments if their income did not exceed $85,553 for 2014 and $70,000 for 2015, provided they met all the other requirements. Applicants whose income was over $70,000 but was $87,007 or less can establish their eligibility for future reimbursements by filing an application by the due date. This also ensures the Division will mail them applications for 2016.
