Anchor Program NJ How To Apply

As a renter or homeowner, getting benefits from the government can help you save money. In New Jersey, the ANCHOR Program allows you to save money on property taxes. This article will give you all the necessary guide on the Anchor Program NJ and how to Apply. But before we dive into the details. 

What is the ANCHOR Program?

ANCHOR is a tax relief program that provides financial help to New Jersey citizens who own or rent property as their primary home and meet individual income limits. The Program makes living in New Jersey more affordable for people who need it most.

According to a report from the NJ Division portal, the deadline for ANCHOR benefits ends on Friday, December 29, 2023, and they will start paying 90 days after applying unless additional information is needed to process your claim. 

Who is Eligible for the ANCHOR Program NJ?

  • You must be a New Jersey resident.
  • You must own and occupy a home in New Jersey that was your principal residence (main house) on October 1, 2020.
  • You must have paid 2020 property taxes on that home.
  • Your 2020 New Jersey gross income must have been $250,000 or less.

You may be eligible for an ANCHOR homeowner benefit if you meet these requirements.

The Program has three categories to apply which is:
