You may be eligible for a $250 per year property tax deduction.

Reservists and National Guard personnel must have been called to active duty service to qualify. Active duty for training is ineligible. A surviving spouse/civil union/domestic partner of an honorably discharged deceased veteran with active duty military service and the surviving spouse has not remarried may also be eligible.

To qualify, as of October 1 of the pretax year, you must:

  • Be a legal resident of New Jersey;
  • Own the property;
  • Have active duty service in the United States Armed Forces with an honorable discharge (DD-214).

Social Security Fraud

We recently received reports where individuals have been contacted by someone pretending to be an SSA employee. The intent of this type of call may be to steal your identity and/or money from your bank accounts. The caller generally asks you for personal information such as your Social Security number, date of birth, your mother's maiden name, or your bank or financial account information.

The impersonator may state that "the SSA computers are down" or may refer to enrollment in the Medicare prescription drug program. The intent of this type of call may be to steal your identity and/or money from your bank accounts. You should not provide any of this information to these individuals.

If you receive a suspicious call:

  1. Hang up
  2. Do NOT give money or personal information
  3. Report the scam at OIG.SSA.GOV
