Last week Governor Murphy signed into law A-1048, which requires property tax bills to contain eligibility information on State tax relief programs. P.L. 2019, c. 186 requires that the property tax bills include a link to the Division of Taxation’s website where a listing of and eligibility requirements for various State property tax relief programs can be found. While the law took effect immediately it will apply to property tax bills printed after September 17, 2019. We thank the sponsors for amending the bill to require a link to the information on the Division of Taxation’s website instead of the original requirement that municipalities include a listing and eligibility requirements with each property tax bill.
