Anchor Benefit replaces Homestead Benefit

A headsup regarding name change. This email received today:

"You will receive an email from the Division of Taxation by September 30, 2022, with a link so you can file your ANCHOR Benefit application online. The ANCHOR program replaces the Homestead Benefit program. If you owned and occupied a principal residence or rented a rental unit in New Jersey on October 1, 2019, you may be eligible for a benefit payment.

The deadline for filing your application is December 30, 2022. If you do not receive the email by the second week of October 2022, contact our Customer Service Center at 1 (888) 238-1233."

"Homeowners with income of $150,000 receive $1,500 in property tax rebates, said Kenneth Bagner, a certified public accountant with Sobel and Co. in Livingston.

Those earning between $150,000 and $250,000 will receive $1,000 rebates, and renters making up to $150,000 will receive $450 checks, Bagner said.

The benefit is only for primary residences.

“The checks are expected in May 2023,” Bagner said. “Eligible homeowners and tenants will be able to apply in the fall either online, by phone or mail-in a paper application, similar to the Homestead Benefit in previous years.”

Find your age and income on the colored chart (link below) to get the percentage of rebate . Multiply your total property tax by that percentage to get the dollar amount . I read that the rebate will be applied to the May 2023 quarterly property tax bill like the current Homestead rebate . I assume renters will get a check in the mail or by direct deposit .

What a load of crap if you rent out a property you should be able to qualify


If you're paying property taxes on that rental property you qualify . Supposedly the 250 or 450 rebate for renters who did not get any type of rebate before is meant to help offset rent increases .

Correct for this 2022 filing based upon 2019 status. Supposed to be payable in Spring of 2023. Curious how it will implemented going forward.


"New Jerseyans seeking property tax relief have been given another extension to file for the state’s new ANCHOR property tax program.......You now have until Feb. 28 to complete the application.

And it looks like this will be the method going forward. There will be a lag for new homeowners, as 2020, 2021, and 2022 will follow annually. For example someone who buys now (early 2023) they won't get the money until 2027...

Calico696 Calico696

ole' timer
Mar '23

thanks for reading my mind, NOT.

What I meant was currently NJ has the highest property taxes in the US, of any state. California and New York laugh at us, coast to coast. You can point fingers at me but really folks, it's all of NJ, any income, it all sucks.

My point for me, but can be extended to anyone. I got my rebate. And yet, after the rebate, I, and all of NJ, still pay the highest property tax in the entire United States. Our rate is 2.49%, the next highest is 2.27%. By the fifth highest state, the rate is below 2%. Therefore, if your rebate was around 10% off your tax rate, then you pay 2.25% --- still about the highest in the land, at least 48 of the 49 states. That's just freakin sad. That means there are 45 states where you can instantly save 20% of your property tax and 44 states where you save more than 20%.

Get it? That's what I meant, speaking for me and all of NJ --- especially the ole timers.

For the ole timer, here's a clue: NEW JERSEY IS NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN.

Financially, anyone retired should move if they like extra $$$$ each month. Perhaps four digits worth. If you are staying here for other reasons, like family, well, there's your bill for that.

And yes, after careers of two folks working 60 hour weeks for New Jersey pay, also Trump years favored us in investments but screwed us more in property taxes, our income remains nice enough. If it pleases you, we are much lower last year, and probably this one as well.

But my real point is NJ is financially signaling that it want all ole timers to move out of state. It is not competitive, property tax wise, to live here if you can avoid it. It's not that our taxes are too high. In total tax bundle, NJ ranks around 6th, in property tax - 1st. IOW ---- if you are not working, there is no financial reason to stay and a great financial reason to leave. That's old folks. We're old but still mobile, most of us. And our tax picture has changed. We buy less commodities, own our homes, so lower property taxes matter, sales tax not so much especially if not on food and drugs, and income tax far less.

NJ is structured for the young. We are third in income levels so it's a great place to work, financially speaking. It's just that when you are done working, the property tax is a real stinger. That's on top of having the 8th highest median home costs as well. That's all, ole timer. And even if you are lucky enough to get a nice rebate, it really does not mute the high rate. But our overall tax picture, while high, is clearly not the highest, just in the top ten like our home prices. IMO --- NJ needs to restructure it's tax profile to make property tax rates competitive with other states. That's what I am really saying. It should be an old person friendly state, not the worst state in the union for them, financially speaking.

Welcome relief for many. It may slow or at least stall for a bit the exodus from NJ for our older generation.


Yes , it reduces the most costly property tax in the land to a new level that is still the most expensive property tax in the land.

I love this. Freedom of choice. If a state screws you, you may have a choice. Those who have resources can get out. Those who don't stay on the dole.


There was a very interesting column by Tom Moran in Sunday's Star Ledger about this tax-reduction "plan". I can't summarize it totally, but basically he believes it is just a big con in order to get votes this fall. It won't go into effect until 2026, a new Governor will be in office by then, the whole plan is contingent on available revenues to fund it, etc. If you can find it on-line, it's worth a read, but Star-Ledger probably will not provide it free.

"The plan would also expand the “Senior Freeze” property tax relief program by increasing the income eligibility threshold by $50,000 to $150,000 and by decreasing the residency requirement from 10 years to three years."

my direct was within the last week.

so they gave me money and yet I still pay the highest taxes in the US: it's magic or we suck that bad ------ pretty easy choice.

reminds me once while working for a high-cost company trying to do better and we cut cost 50% on a product. Seeing the boss with puffed up chests about our accomplishment, we heard: "can you do it again." even though the most costly product in the land, we couldn't. In NJ, the property taxes are so bad, they could double the anchor and I would still be paying more than any other state for equivalent property. And yet, we don't pay the highest state TOTAL tax burden. We are like number 6 in Total Burden, but number 1 in Property (which does result in best public education of any state), so it's a balancing game between taxes that the State will not do.

babbit babbit

It's absurd... I got a breakdown on my taxes a couple weeks ago and it was something like 7k for schools.

They should put school tax onto those with kids in school.

So the ones using the school, getting the benefit- are the ones paying for the product they are consuming.


Josh, not just your property taxes. State taxes are heavily used for education, i.e. retirement medical and pensions for educators are paid from state taxes. So when you see your school costs in your town the aforementioned is not included. Part of the intentional "game" played for the past 40+ years to hide the true excessive cost of public education.


While it likely never will happen because of all the complexities, I'd like to see all taxes become income based. (I could maybe see sales/excise/sin taxes being a partial exception, as these types at least have some level of you pay for what you use...though I do realize they're regressive)

That way seniors could at least not be forced to move solely on account of property taxes.

Lakeview, everything has to be within a budget. For example, I want a 10 million dollar home but can only afford 1 million, you get a 1 million dollar home. In NJ, the NJEA has the most donor influence so you have be sure that if it is teacher pensions and retiree medical that have to suffer or StayNJ, then you know the answer. The same problem occurring right now with Ukraine and Israel. AIPAC and others donations gives them control over many Republicans and Democrats to get legislation favorable to Israel, in this example. StayNJ sounds great but it is not guaranteed and will always be second fiddle.


Thanks for posting that, ianimal. 2.2% spent on athletics is not a "large portion", as Steve so incorrectly points out. I'd be inclined to argue that a little more should be spent, based on our facilities, etc., but that's an argument for another day ha!

received check on 20th.


Americans long ago made the wise decision to invest in education making us an economic and even thought powerhouse. My father stepped out of the factory with the GI bill elevating his family to a new economic and educational summit. The stuff works. As a person with matriculated kids; I was proud to pay still even when shelling out $100k a year for a couple years for college. As a senior, no problem paying still for school but the highest prop tax in the land is not competitive; I will leave soon just because of that.

The concept of pay-as-you-go just means less educated kids and even greater distance between affluence and stupidity. More would be undereducated.

There's even a national defense advantage to education.

NJ does not have the highest tax burden, we are like 5th. I suggest load balancing taxes to lower property to be competitive so seniors like me don't flee. Then pick up the lost school/prop tax from the load balance. Don't force me to downsize to stay, I will just go away..

NJ is a top school system. High salaries too. It's a great place to earn and raise smart well educated kids. Even our state school seems almost ivy. We don't want to screw with that but screwing the old folk isn't smart either. We have FY money and we know how to use it.
