Senior Property Tax Exemption
One of the tax credit deadlines is fast approaching. March 2nd is the deadline for 65 year old property owners of the 127thAssembly district to apply for property tax reduction. This is an income-limited exemption. Seniors must apply each year and submit federal or state tax returns each year to continue qualifying. The town assessors have the pertinent information for each town.
See this link for initial application: here
