18 Feb: Van Drew Bill To Expand Property Tax Relief Clears Committee

TRENTON – The Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee today approved legislation sponsored by Senator Jeff Van Drew, D-Cape May, Cumberland and Atlantic, to expand the State’s property tax relief program, commonly known as the “Senior Freeze,” to more surviving spouses of deceased participants.

The measure, a Senate Committee Substitute for S-593, S-880 and S-1111, would lower to 62 the minimum age a surviving spouse of a participant in the State’s Homestead Property Tax Reimbursement Program can continue receiving the property tax relief benefit for the same home.
