This program is for Senior Citizen tenants who qualify to have their rent frozen at their current level and be exempt from future rent increases. The program will pay for rent increases by applying credits to the landlord’s property tax bill. For more information you can download the SCRIE/DRIE Brochure for Tenants/Landlords.
Notification of a Tenant’s SCRIE Approval
Once a tenant applies and is approved for SCRIE, we send a notification letter to the tenant and the owner/landlord. The letter will show:
- The exemption period;
- The amount the tenant is responsible for paying;
- The tax abatement credit (TAC) the landlord will be credited for that tenant.
To continue getting the SCRIE benefit, the tenant must file a renewal application which will be mailed to them approximately 60 days before their SCRIE benefit expires.

Refunds to Landlords/Owners for Excess SCRIE Credits
If your property is fully tax exempt or if you have a zero balance on your tax bill, you will receive TAC credits on your property tax bill. You may request a refund by submitting a Property Refund Request.
TAC Adjustment Process
If you believe the Tax Abatement Credit (TAC) is incorrect, you may submit the TAC Adjustment Application. Please make sure to provide proof with the form.
The Appeal Process
If you think your tenant is receiving benefits to which they are not entitled, please contact SCRIE as soon as possible, explaining why you believe the tenant does not qualify for SCRIE. You can submit an Appeal Application or a letter explaining your concerns. Your inquiry will remain anonymous. If your tenant recently passed away or moved, please notify us immediately by submitting the SCRIE Ineligibility form.
