By Press Release

TRENTON – Sen. Michael Testa, Assemblyman Erik Simonsen, and Assemblyman Antwan McClellan (all R-1st) remind eligible New Jersey homeowners to file an application for the Senior Freeze Property Tax Relief Program.


According to a release, “If you’re a New Jersey senior citizen and you own a home, you may be eligible for a property tax break that could save you a substantial amount of money,” stated Testa. “If you’re living on a fixed income, the Senior Freeze Program can provide some extra peace of mind. This valuable form of property tax relief can help our retirees afford to stay in their homes right here in the Garden State.”


The Senior Freeze Program reimburses eligible senior citizens and disabled persons for property tax or mobile home park site fee increases on their primary residence. To qualify, they must meet all eligibility requirements. 


Complete the questionnaire to see if they may be eligible for a 2019 Senior Freeze.


Senior Freeze Program applications will be mailed starting in mid-February to the last address seniors filed with. Those who do not receive a booklet by early March, should contact the Senior Freeze Property Tax Reimbursement Information Line at 1-800-882-6597.


“My district office in Cape May Court House is available to help residents of the 1st Legislative District file their Senior Freeze application,” added Testa. “If they have any questions, call my staff at 609-778-2012 or email my office at”
