05 Jun: Van Drew / Madden / Sweeney Measure To Expand Homestead Reimbursment Advances

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senators Jeff Van Drew, Fred H. Madden and Stephen M. Sweeney to expand the State’s homestead property tax reimbursement to more seniors and disabled residents was approved by the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee today.

“It is clear that homeowners and in particular, seniors and the disabled, are struggling to keep up with the increasing property tax burden, and they need relief,” said Senator Van Drew, D-Cape May, Atlantic and Cumberland. “With high properties taxes, we need to be sure that those who need homestead property tax reimbursements remain eligible to receive them.”
