DEFINITIONS AND EXCERPTS FROM P.L. 1989, c. 207 (as amended)
N.J.S.A. 54:4-3.140 - Definitions
"Abatement" means an exemption from real property taxes provided for the purposes of encouraging residential construction, conversion,
improvement and redevelopment pursuant to this act;
"Completed," with respect to a parcel of qualified property, or the "completion" of that property, means substantially ready for the use for
which it is intended and its occupancy as a principal residence;
"Cost," when used with respect to construction, or to an improvement or conversion alteration, means only the cost or fair market value of
labor and materials used in constructing or improving qualified residential property, or in converting another building or structure to
qualified residential property, including any architectural, engineering, and contractors' fees associated with the construction, improvement or
conversion, as the owner of the property shall cause to be certified to the governing body by an independent and qualified architect, following
the completion of the project;
"Qualified municipality" means a municipality in which an urban enterprise zone or part of an urban enterprise zone has been designated
pursuant to the "New Jersey Urban Enterprise Zones Act," P.L.1983, c. 303 (C. 52.27H-60 et seq.), and shall include the entire area within
the corporate boundaries of that municipality, whether or not that area is included within an urban enterprise zone; and
"Qualified residential property" means any building used or to be used or held for use as a home or residence, including accessory
buildings located on the same premises and including condominiums, cooperatives and horizontal property regimes. No building shall be
considered a qualified residential property if the certificate of occupancy for the construction, conversion, rehabilitation or renovation was
issued on or before the date falling 30 months prior to the effective date of this act.
N.J.S.A.54:4-3.141
The governing body of a qualified municipality may, by ordinance, determine that one or more areas within the municipality are in need of
rehabilitation, and that one or more buildings or structures in any such area could be advantageously converted to qualified residential
property or that vacant land in any such area could be advantageously used for the construction of qualified residential property. Any such
determination shall be made in keeping with regulations which shall be promulgated by the Commissioner of Community Affairs pursuant to
the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c. 410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.), which shall take into consideration the following: existence of
blighted areas in the municipality; deterioration of housing stock; age of housing stock; supply of and demand for housing in the municipality;
and arrearage in real property taxes due on residential properties.
N.J.S.A.54:4-3.145
a. Each approved abatement shall be evidenced by a financial agreement between the qualified municipality and the applicant. The
agreement shall be prepared by the applicant and shall contain the representations that are required by the enabling ordinance. The
agreement shall provide for the applicant to annually pay to the municipality an amount in lieu of real property taxes, to be computed
according to either subsection b. or c. of this section, as provided for in the enabling ordinance.
b. Payments in lieu of taxes may be computed as two percent of the cost of the improvements or conversion alterations, as appropriate for
five years following such completion and in the sixth and all subsequent tax years following completion, 100% of the equalized taxes
otherwise due; or
c. Payments in lieu of taxes may be computed as a portion of the real property taxes otherwise due, according to the following schedule:
(1) In the first tax year following completion, no payment in lieu of taxes otherwise due;
(2) In the second tax year following completion, an amount not less than 20% of taxes otherwise due;
(3) In the third tax year following completion, an amount not less than 40% of taxes otherwise due;
(4) In the fourth tax year following completion, an amount not less than 60% of taxes otherwise due;
(5) In the fifth tax year following completion, an amount not less than 80% of taxes otherwise due;
(6) In the sixth and all subsequent tax years following completion, 100% of the equalized taxes otherwise due.
d. For the purposes of this section the amount of "taxes otherwise due" (not to be confused with "equalized taxes otherwise due") shall be
determined by including the appropriate percentage of the assessed valuation of the abated structure, improvement or conversion alteration,
as the case may be, on the assessment list of the municipality as taxable property, and levying taxes thereon in the same manner as other
taxes are levied pursuant to chapter 4 of Title 54 of the Revised Statutes; provided, however, that no value for a property subject to the
provision of this act shall be included in the calculation of the "new valuation on which county taxes are apportioned" until the first tax year
for which a municipal-wide revaluation is implemented.
N.J.S.A.54:4-3.144(b)
The added assessment provisions of section 3 of P.L.1941, c. 397 (C.54:4-63.3) and the omitted assessment provisions of section 9 of
P.L.1947, c. 413 (C54:4-63.20) and section 1 of P.L.1968, c. 184 (C.54:4-63.33) shall not be applicable to any property for which the
owner-occupant has been granted a tax abatement under this act.
