New Jersey seniors feel pinch from delay in homestead benefit
New Jersey's senior homeowners will have to wait nine more months without the homestead benefit on their property taxes.
More than 1 million homeowners on a fixed income find cuts to that relief hard to stomach.
"This is really gonna mean hardship," says Jim Dieterle, of AARP New Jersey. "It's gonna mean either not seeing their grandkids or really just some kinds of quality-of-life issues."
