THE GOVERNOR HAS CHANGED THE RENEWAL REQUIREMENT FOR THE SENIOR EXEMPTION (AGED) AND DISABILITY EXEMPTION. THIS MEANS YOU’LL RECEIVE THE SAME EXEMPT STATUS THAT YOU HAD IN 2020 WITHOUT FILING AN APPLICATION.
The Governor has passed an executive order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that permits the local municipalities to suspend the requirement for renewal applications to be filed for the 2021 assessment roll. In the interest of keeping our residents safe, the exemptions covered by the Executive Order for 2021 that waive the renewal requirements are:
- Partial Tax Exemption for Real Property of Senior Citizens (467)
- Partial Tax Exemption for Real Property of Persons with Disabilities and Limited Income (459-c)
Normally you would receive a renewal application to continue your coverage under one of these programs. This action will ensure that you will receive the same exempt status that you had on the 2020 assessment roll without filing the application. If the Assessor’s Office receives any information that would lead to a change in your exemption status for either of these programs, you will be notified. Thank you.
