HIGHLAND PARK — The Borough of Highland Park and Main Street Highland Park have initiated a financial-incentive program for residents and visitors who shop in Highland Park. The Shop Highland Park Reward Program allows shoppers who use a reward card at participating downtown businesses to receive a percentage of their purchase amount back as a property tax credit or rebate check.
“We are very excited to bring this program to Highland Park,” said Mayor Gary Minkoff. “This is a great way for our residents and visitors to save money while enjoying our wonderful downtown. Highland Park has so many unique and culturally diverse shops, and we welcome shoppers to our community.”
Participating businesses determine the incentive reward offered to its customers, which will be processed at the point of sale. Each business has a window cling clearly displayed, and a list of participating merchants is available at www.propertytaxcard.com.
Homeowners in Highland Park may receive their reward either through a property tax credit or rebate check. Renters and non-residents who use the card will receive their savings in the form of a rebate check. The amount of reward per purchase is accumulated in an escrow account until the end of the shopping year (May 1st through April 30th). The tax credit option will be credited to the third quarter tax period.
Rewards card are being mailed to all Highland Park residents, or are available at the Main Street offices at 212 Raritan Avenue.
For questions about the program, please contact James McCrone at Main Street at (732) 828-8444 or FinCredit Inc, (Program Administrator) at (732) 946-0919.
