Senior Freeze (Property Tax Reimbursement)

Taxation | Privacy Policy

Check the status of your New Jersey Senior Freeze (Property Tax Reimbursement). If a reimbursement has been issued, the system will tell you the amount of the reimbursement and the date it was issued.

To use this service, you will need the Social Security number that was listed first on your Senior Freeze application (Form PTR-1 or Form PTR-2) and the ZIP Code of your principal residence for the year of the application you filed.

If you have questions about the Senior Freeze Program and need to speak to a Division representative, contact the Senior Freeze (Property Tax Reimbursement) Hotline: 1-800-882-6597. Have a copy of your application available when you call.

The unprecedented impact COVID-19 has had on the economy has forced the state to freeze funding for many worthy programs, including Senior Freeze, and prompted the extension of the budget deadline from June 30 to September 30. Therefore, funding for Senior Freeze reimbursements that typically occur during mid-summer is unavailable at this time. Please check back here again in early October for possible updates.

Eligibility requirements, including income limits, and benefits available under this program are subject to change by the State Budget.
