The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].
Hi Mayor Coles,
I’m a senior citizen and I’m not working just getting by on SS. My HOA goes up every year, my taxes also; do you think you could put a cap on all. Please advise I need your help.
Response from Mayor Coles:
Changes to HOA fees and property taxes are controlled by the state. There is a senior property tax freeze approved by the state. It is income based. You should call town hall and see if you qualify for it.
There is also legislation currently being proposed in Trenton that will cut property taxes for seniors in half, to help them afford to remain in New Jersey when they retire.
