The State budget for FY 2006 includes funding for FAIR rebates to eligible non-senior and non-disabled homeowners. Accordingly, the Division of Taxation this week began to mail out applications to homeowners who did not receive them in the April mailing to residents that could be identified as senior (age 65 or older on December 31, 2004) or disabled homeowners. The mailing of the application packets will be staggered over a two-week period. The deadline for filing these applications is August 15, 2005.
Some senior and disabled homeowners may receive an application packet in this July mailing, even though they have already filed for the 2004 FAIR homeowner rebate. Homeowners who have already filed their applications online or by phone and received a confirmation number, or who have completed and mailed in a paper application, should not file again.
The FAIR homeowner rebate application delivery dates by county are:
Expected Delivery Date
|Cape May, Union
|Camden, Hudson, Hunterdon, Salem, Somerset
|Bergen, Burlington, Cumberland, Warren
|Gloucester, Mercer, Middlesex, Passaic
|Atlantic, Essex, Monmouth, Sussex
|| July 19
