Information for Seniors

In an effort to give our residents every opportunity for exemptions, the Assessor’s office would like to share some important information. Now that the state will be managing all Enhanced STAR exemptions, the Assessor’s office does not have the opportunity to monitor resident income and inform residents as to additional exemption opportunities.  In the past the Assessor was able to offer additional exemption information when a decrease in income was noticed. In an effort to keep the Farmington residents informed, please be aware of the following guidelines for additional exemption opportunities:

In the Victor Central School District there are additional exemption opportunities for residents 65 and over with an income of less than $37,399. Out of pocket medical expenses may be deducted to reach this threshold for residents of the Victor Central School District.  In the Canandaigua City School District, the income limit is $29,900 but no deductions are allowed for medical. The same applies to the Palmyra Macedon School District [income limit $26,900] and Red Jacket School District [income limit $19,200]. The Town of Farmington also deducts out of pocket medical expenses to reach the $22,000 income limit. Please contact the Assessor’s office if you think that you may meet any of the guidelines outlined above.
