ANCHOR Rebate Checks To Start Arriving Today

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and state Treasurer Elizabeth Maher Muoio announced today that the first batch of ANCHOR Property Tax Relief rebate payments will be on their way to New Jerseyans who elected their rebate via direct deposit.

More than 800,000 New Jersey taxpayers will receive a direct deposit of their ANCHOR rebate payment today.

Following the issuance of the direct deposit payments, paper checks will begin to be mailed during the first week of April, in batches of mailings.

The Affordable New Jersey Communities for Homeowners and Renters (ANCHOR) property tax relief program updates and expands upon the former Homestead Benefit property tax relief program by extending eligibility to renters for the first time in a generation, as well as increasing the income threshold for eligible homeowners.

Established in the Fiscal Year 2023 State budget, Governor Murphy has proposed continuing the full $2 billion in funding for Fiscal Year 2024 in the upcoming budget.

More than 1.7 million New Jersey residents applied for the ANCHOR rebate program, including 1.25 million homeowners and over 514,000 renters.

The majority of payments will be issued before May 3, 2023, with applications that need additional information potentially taking more time to finalize.

If no payment is received by May 3, 2023, applicants should use the status inquiry link or call 1-888-238-1233 for more information.

If the status says a payment has been made, but has not yet been received, taxpayers should call the hotline one week after a direct deposit was supposed to go out or two weeks after a check was supposed to be mailed.
