The first workshop is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Kennedy Center off JFK Way in Willingboro. The second will be held at 11:30 a.m. Aug. 2 at the same location.
The two workshops will feature representatives from the state’s Division of Taxation. The events were organized by state Assemblymen Herb Conaway, D-7th of Delanco, and Jack Conners, D-7th of Pennsauken.
This year, the budget passed by the state Legislature included a new program that will provide rebates of up to 20 percent to households that make less than $100,000.
Households that make up to $150,000 will get up to a 15 percent rebate; households that make up to $250,000 will get up to a 10 percent rebate; and households that earn more than $250,000 don’t qualify for a rebate.
Seniors, meanwhile, will get to choose between the new initiative and existing tax relief programs, such as the senior property tax freeze, to ensure they don’t end up getting a smaller rebate than last year.
