On this page are the most frequently used instructions and exemption applications.  Feel free to click on the desired form, print it off and return it to the Assessor's office.  As a reminder, exemption applications are due by March 1st per NYS Real Property Tax Law.  If you have any questions, let us know.

The Enhanced STAR Exemption is available for the primary residences where at least one owner is 65 years old and the yearly household income does not exceed the statewide standard.  For example, for 2020 your total household income (adjusted gross income minus taxable IRA distributions) on your 2018 tax return cannot exceed $88,050.  

The Partial Tax Exemption for Real Property of Senior Citizens (65 and older) is income-based and in addition to the Enhanced Star Exemption. Contact the Assessor for specific income limits that would apply to your property. Qualification is based on total income the year preceding the application due date. The current maximum income level varies by school district for school purposes, must be $21,200 for county purposes and $22,000 for town purposes (however, the town does deduct unreimbursed medical expenses). Contact the Assessor on how to complete the Partial Tax Exemption for Real Property of Senior Citizens application.

This exemption is available only for residential property of veterans who served during wartime or received an expeditionary medal.  A copy of your DD-214 will need to be provided with the completed application as well as any documentation you may have that shows a disability percentage rating. Applications can be found online or at the Assessor's office. For instructions on completing the application see the link below.  

The Cold War Veterans Exemption is available for real property owned by persons who rendered military service to the United States during the Cold War (defined as September 2, 1945 to December 26, 1991).  This exemption is not available to property owners who are currently receiving either the Alternative Veterans Exemption or the Eligible Funds Veterans Exemption. A copy of your DD-214 will need to be provided with a completed application as well as any documentation you may have that shows a disability percentage rating. Applications can be found online or at the Assessor's office.

This form is used to initially receive an agricultural exemption on your land.  The land must consist of seven or more acres that were used for the preceding two years for the production for sale of crops, livestock or livestock products.  The annual gross sales of agricultural products must average $10,000 or more for the proceeding two years.  Land that supports a commercial horse boarding operation may qualify for an agricultural exemption if at least seven acres of land supports the operation, boards at least ten horses, the operation receives $10,000 or more in gross receipts for the preceeding two years and other factors.  Contact the Assessor's office if you believe that you may qualify for an agricultural exemption.  The agricultural exemption must be renewed every year. 

If a property owner rents the land to another party who satisfies the income/eligibility requirements, the land may qualify for an agricultural exemption.  This five year lease form needs to be completed.  No Notary Public signature is required.  

Complete this renewal application yearly if your property continues to be eligible for an agricultural exemption. Instructions are included on this link.

The Board of Assessment Review meets on the fourth Tuesday in May every year. The Grievance Application must be submitted on or before the fourth Tuesday in May.
