Affordable New Jersey Communities for Homeowners and Renters (ANCHOR)

This program provides property tax relief to New Jersey residents who own or rent property in New Jersey as their principal residence and meet certain income limits. The current filing season for the ANCHOR benefit is based on 2020 residency, income, and age.

The filing deadline was December 29, 2023.

Payments will continue to be issued on a rolling basis. Most applicants can expect to receive their payment approximately 90 days after filing the application, unless we request additional information to process your claim.

Scammers often send you texts or emails to steal your identity. We will never initiate a text exchange to request personally identifiable information regarding your ANCHOR benefit.
