State Treasurer David Rousseau has announced that eligible non-senior, non-disabled homeowners (under age 65 and not disabled as of December 31, 2007) who filed an application for the NJ Homestead Rebate by August 15 can expect to receive their 2007 rebate checks in a mailing that went out yesterday (Sept 15).

Those who requested direct deposit will have their rebates deposited directly into their bank accounts.
Homeowners with incomes of $100,000 or less will receive 20 percent of the first $10,000 of property taxes paid in 2006; those whose incomes are between $100,001 and $150,000 will receive 10 percent of the first $10,000 of property taxes paid in 2006. Those with income over $150,000 are not eligible for the rebate this year.
The Treasurer also noted that applications for the NJ Homestead Rebate are still being accepted.
Homeowners and tenants who still have not applied for the rebate have until October 31, 2008, to file their applications. The clock is winding down, so anyone who has not yet filed should do so quickly.

Applicants who have already filed can check the status of their rebate check by calling 1-877-658-2972, or online at-
