Affordable New Jersey Communities for Homeowners and Renters (ANCHOR)

Anchor Property Tax Benefit Program

This program provides property tax relief to New Jersey residents who owned or rented their principal residence (main home) on October 1, 2019, and met the income limits.

Filing deadline: January 31, 2023

Homeowners who filed a Homestead Benefit application last year may be able to obtain their ID and PIN numbers online.

Renters/Tenants do not need an ID or PIN number to file.

We will begin paying ANCHOR benefits in the late Spring of 2023. ANCHOR payments will be paid in the form of a direct deposit or check, not as credits to property tax bills.

All property tax relief program information provided here is based on current law and is subject to change.
