The Property Tax Reimbursement Program (PTR) is a state-offered program for senior citizens and disabled persons. Once you file, the original year on your PTR Form becomes your base year, and any time that your property taxes increase, the following year the state will reimburse the homeowner the difference they paid between the base year and the filing year.
For more information on the program, visit the New Jersey Department of the Treasury website. If you have questions or want to check the status of a filed application, call 800-882-6597. To listen to information or to order an application, call 800-323-4400.
