NJ Income Tax Property Tax Deduction / Credit for Homeowners and Tenants

1 min read

How can this program help me?

If you are a renter or homeowner, this program gives you credit for some of the property tax or rent you paid. This lowers your taxable income. If you are a homeowner, you can deduct an amount set by the program. If you rent, a certain part of the rent you paid during the year is considered property taxes paid, and you will receive a credit. The amount of property tax or rent refund you get will depend on your income and other factors.


How do I get help?

To find out how to apply, contact you local tax assessor's office.
