Senior Citizen Property Tax Exemption was submitted by Eric Hanson on Thu, 26 Feb 2015

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

Other tax credits to review as you prepare your income tax return:

Earned Income Tax Credit has both a federal and a New York State table for credits.

Check out this link

Empire State Child Credit for families with young children. This credit is income-related.

Check it out here

The Child and Dependent Care Credit for people who pay for child care or those who live with and care for disabled family members.

Check it out here

In all there are over 10 tax credits that may take a bite out of your income taxes. Review these here

Many more credits apply to entrepreneurs, farmers and employers. Go to New York State Department of Taxation and Finance for information as tax season progresses.

If you have further concerns about this or any other community issue, or if I can be of service to you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact my office.
