Own Ocean

The "OWN OCEAN" Property Tax Rewards Program

The Own Ocean property tax rewards program kicked off on August 1, 2015. It has allowed participants to receive $41,000 in aggregate to date!  The program, which is open to anyone, allows participants to earn rebates while shopping and dining with participating merchants.  Our participating merchants offer varying discounts on qualifying purchases which will appear as a credit on  participating property owners’ third quarter property tax bills each year or, in the case of renters, returned via a rebate check in August of each year.

If you don't have an Own Ocean card yet, stop in to the Tax Collector's office in Town Hall, 399 Monmouth Road, Oakhurst, during business hours to pick one up.

You’ll want your card handy when shopping and dining with our participating merchants.

While Ray Catena has generously sponsored the Own Ocean Property Tax Rewards Program (in addition to countless other charities and sponsorships throughout the State) the Ray Catena Auto Group is not a participating program merchant.  We greatly appreciate his generosity with this program.
