The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) has implemented a 6 Point ID Verification system to obtain New Jersey drivers licenses. This system is meant to help prevent identity theft by ensuring that licenses are only issued with proper legal documents and verification.
Before you go to the MVC to obtain or renew a drivers license, you should read this brochure to ensure that you have the right combination of documents to satisfy the verification requirements.
Some people may have trouble meeting the point requirements to obtain a license due to lost, damaged or unobtainable documents, name changes or other issues.
In some instances, our office may be able to work with the NJMVC on your behalf to obtain the necessary verification. Contact us to see if we are able to assist you.
We can help you to process your application to obtain or renew a commission as a Notary Public.
Your completed application requires the signature of a member of the New Jersey Legislature. You may send or deliver your completed application to our district office to be signed by Senator Bateman.
Additional information on the duties and process of becoming a notary can be found on the Treasury Department's website.
There are a number of property tax relief programs that New Jersey residents may be eligible to receive, including the Property Tax Reimbursement Program (Senior Freeze), the Homestead Benefit, and various deductions and exemptions for senior citizens, disabled persons and veterans.
A complete listing and description of existing property tax relief programs is available on the Treasury Department's website.
Our office may be able to assist you to determine your eligibility for property tax relief programs and to complete and submit applications. Please review the programs on the Treasury website and contact us if you have questions or require assistance.
