2019 Property Tax Exemption Renewals Mailed! NOTE SOME CHANGES!

This alert is a reminder from the Town of Webster Assessment Office for those who are assisting others in completing the required real property tax exemption renewal application for the 2019-2020 tax cycle. All renewable property tax exemption applications have been mailed. The first batch was mailed in October. There are additional forms in most renewal packets this year as the State has severed the automatic connection between the Enhanced STAR exemption and the Limited-Income Senior exemption (for those who have both).  This is the last year our office will be collecting income information for the STAR program.  The State will verify it in future years.  We WILL CONTINUE to collect the income information for the Limited-Income Senior exemption program.  We will help you sort through this confusion, but please do not put it aside thinking there is plenty of time. We all have extra work to do this year!  While the deadline is March 1, 2019, why wait?! The applicant now has in his/her possession everything necessary to submit the renewal application today. For seniors, we are accepting 2017 income information only. No need to wait until the 2018 income taxes are ready (that will be used for the next renewal). Apply now! Questions? 585-872-7051
