The deadline for submitting the NJ Homestead Benefit application has been extended.
“Acting to ensure that as many New Jerseyans as possible receive property tax relief, Governor Chris Christie has extended the deadline for filing Homestead Benefit applications to Friday, December 14.”
It appears that this extension does not also apply to the Property Tax Reimbursement application (PTR-1 and PTR-2).
This has nothing to do with SANDY – the press release was dated October 9, 2013. I expect that a notice extending tax payments and filings due to SANDY will be forthcoming.
New York has already issued the following announcement –
“Deadlines for filing and paying taxes has been suspended for the period from October 26, 2012 through November 14, 2012. Tax returns and tax payments that are due during this period are now due on November 14, 2012”
The NJ Division of Taxation has also announced that –
“2011 Homestead Benefits will be applied as a credit to property tax bills in May 2013.”
