Tax Treatment of New Jersey Property Tax Benefit Payments

Homestead benefits, property tax reimbursement (Senior Freeze) payments, FAIR rebates, and NJ SAVER rebates are not taxable for New Jersey income tax purposes, and should not be reported on the New Jersey income tax return.

Information on the Federal income tax treatment of these payments, called "recoveries" by the IRS, can be found in the Federal Form 1040 instructions and IRS Publication 525, Taxable and Nontaxable Income, which are available on the IRS website.
