Tax Collector: Files for Processing Homestead Benefit Tax Credits - 03/23/2016

Municipalities should start processing and mailing 2nd quarter 2016 adjusted tax bills for recipients of 2013 Homestead Benefit Credits. Tax Collection Vendors have received the files for their review and distribution. Tax Collectors should contact them to proceed with this process. Tax Collectors can access a (PDF) verification form named "2016 Homestead Benefit Credits" that is posted in the Tax Collector Document Library.  THE INFORMATION ON THE PDF SHOULD BE COMPARED TO THE INFORMATION RECEIVED FROM YOUR VENDOR to ensure that all the eligible properties are correctly credited. With the release of the homestead benefit adjusted tax bills, collectors are reminded that homestead credits that have been applied to properties for the second quarter (May 2016) are not to be transferred or otherwise altered due to change in homeownership. It has been determined that the Homestead Benefit Credit information can be treated as public information, once adjusted tax bills are produced.  This means that normal business rules and public records policies apply. If you have any questions, please contact Pat Turin at 609-292-6858 or pat.turin@dca.nj.gov or Margaret Saharic at 609-984-4185 or margaret.saharic@dca.nj.gov.
