The Vernon Township Economic Development Advisory Committee is pleased to introduce Shop Vernon, a property tax incentive program designed to bring tax relief as a reward for shopping local.
Homeowners can earn as much as 10% back on local purchases which will be applied to their property tax bill for the year. This could mean thousands of dollars in savings. The more you shop local, the more you earn.
Not a property owner? No problem! If you are a renter or live in a different town, you can still participate. Instead of a tax rebate, you will receive an annual check reflecting the total rebates earned.
How to Enroll
