Division of Tax Collection
Property Tax Reimbursement
The State of New Jersey’s Property Tax Reimbursement (PTR or “Senior Freeze”) program reimburses eligible senior citizens and disabled persons for property tax increases on their principal residence. For detailed information regarding this program including eligibility requirements, please visit the State’s website at: https://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/ptr/
Applicants are required to submit to the State proof of the amount of property taxes that were due and paid along with the applications. This can be accomplished by either one of the following ways:
- The Division of Taxation will accept copies of the tax bills for the requested year(s) along with copies of cancelled checks or receipts for the taxes paid for those years.
- Alternatively, a verification form is provided with the PTR application. This form can be completed by a Certified Tax Collector.
Verification forms can either be mailed to the Tax Collector’s office (1979 Township Drive, Marlboro, NJ 07746) or left in the 24-hour drop box (located inside the vestibule of Town Hall) with a self-addressed stamped envelope. No personal identifying information other than name and address is required to be included in the submission to the Tax Office, and residents are encouraged to leave only the form, rather than the entire application booklet. While the form does ask for the applicants’ social security numbers, we neither require nor ask the resident to provide that when submitting the form to the Tax Collector’s office for completion. This information can be filled in after the form is completed by the Tax Collector and prior to mailing to the State. The Tax Office processes the verification forms as expeditiously as possible, and they are typically mailed back within two business days. The form will be completed and returned via mail using the self-addressed stamped envelope.
