Property tax deductions exist for Veterans and their surviving spouses, who served during time of conflict, Senior Citizens age 65 and their surviving spouses and 100% Disabled persons. The amounts of the deductions vary per deduction and other requirements must be met prior to approval. The deduction is subtracted directly from your yearly tax bill on a quarterly basis. These deductions are filed with the Tax Collector or Assessor and are approved and administered locally according to NJ State Statute. If you are a Veteran who is 100% permanently disabled due to an injury sustained during combat, you may be eligible for a complete exemption from property tax on your primary residence. This application is also filed and administered locally in the tax offices. For more information on any of these deductions please see the links below.
