The Senior Freeze Program reimburses eligible senior citizens and disabled persons for property tax or mobile home park site fee increases on their principal residence (main home). To qualify, citizens must meet all the eligibility requirements for each year from the base year through the application year.
The NJ Division of Taxation has begun mailing 2022 Senior Freeze blue booklets. PTR-1 booklets are mailed to homeowners who may qualify, and preprinted PTR-2 booklets are mailed to eligible homeowners who applied last year. In addition, PTR-1 and some PTR-2 forms are available online.
The deadline for 2022 applications is October 31, 2023.
