Property Tax Deducations

Tax deductions and exemptions are granted only by provision of the New Jersey Constitution or by general law.  At present, deductions and exemptions granted by constitutional provision concern property of war veterans and their surviving spouses, senior citizens, disabled persons and their surviving spouses.

Senior Citizens, Disabled Persons, Surviving Spouses:  http://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/pdf/other_forms/lpt/ptd.pdf

To qualify for the annual $250.00 real property tax deduction a claimant must meet requirements of citizenship, property ownership, residency, income, timely application and age or disability or widowhood.
