ANCHOR – Affordable NJ Communities for Homeowners & Renters


Enacted by Governor Murphy and the Legislature in June 2022, the new ANCHOR property tax relief program – which stands for Affordable NJ Communities for Homeowners & Renters – is going to be a game changer for countless residents. Replacing the Homestead Benefit, ANCHOR will provide property tax relief for double the amount of homeowners while renters will also benefit for the first time in years. Nearly 1.2 million homeowners will receive a benefit of up to $1,500 and over 900,000 renters will receive a benefit of $450.

As this program is brand new, we have created this promotional toolkit to help get the word out throughout the Garden State. Please feel free to share any of these materials with your constituents, family, friends, neighbors and anyone who might benefit from this generous new property tax relief program! Check back here often as new materials are added.

The deadline for applying for this year's program is January 31, 2023.

To save time, applicants are encouraged to check out the most Frequently Asked Questions posted on the Division of Taxation's website.

For additional information on ANCHOR's eligibility requirements, benefit levels, and how to apply, please visit the Division of Taxation's ANCHOR website today.


Treasurer Muoio explains everything you need to know about the ANCHOR program in under 2 minutes.
