New Law Requires Property Tax Relief Info on Tax Bills

On Monday, Governor Murphy signed into law P.L. 2019, c.186, which requires property tax bills printed on or after September 17, 2019, include a statement indicating that State property tax relief program information is available on the New Jersey Division of Taxation’s website. The new law also required the Director of the Division of Local Government Services to set standards for how the statement shall appear on the tax bill. To that end, the DCA issued a Local Finance Notice (LFN 2019-11) outlining the standards and the statement now required to appear on all tax bills.

In accordance with the law and the LFN, property tax bills printed on or after September 17, 2019, must include the following statement, in 10-point type on the back or front of the bill:

“For information about State Property Tax Relief Programs, including eligibility criterion and potential deduction or credit amounts, please visit the Division of Taxation’s website.” 

Tax bills issued on paper stock ordered before the issuance of the Notice and Replacement bill for tax bills issued before September 17, 2019, must include this statement.  However, in these circumstances, the statement may be stamped to the existing stock or included as a separate document accompanying the bill instead of being printed on the bill itself.

Estimated tax bills do not need to include this statement.  And, at the municipality’s discretion, a statement that property tax deduction application forms can be obtained from the tax assessor or tax collector may supplement the prescribed statement.
