Exemptions
Tax relief may be available for eligible applicants applying for any of the following major exemptions. All exemption applications must be filed on or before March 1.

1. Seniors – Senior citizens may be eligible for a partial exemption from Real Property Taxes if they meet income requirements and at least one of the owners named on the deed is 65 years of age during the calendar year (January 1 – December 31). Please have the following information with you when you apply: proof of age, executed copy of income tax (if filed), Social Security benefit statements, statements of wages, pensions, interest, dividends, capital gains, nontaxable interest and rental or alimony if applicable. This application must be renewed by March 1 of each year. If you are eligible for a senior exemption you will automatically receive the Enhanced Star exemption.

2. Veterans – Veterans who served during defined periods of war may be eligible for an exemption on a residential property that they own and occupy. Surviving spouses of a veteran may also be eligible to apply. This exemption does not affect school taxes but may be applied to village and county taxes. If eligible you may receive a 15% reduction of the property’s assessed value and if combat duty can be documented, an additional 10% will be applied. If the veteran received a service-connected disability rating, one-half of the disability rating will be added to the exemption.

3. Basic STAR – The Basic STAR exemption is for all owner-occupied residents with an income that does not exceed $500,000. The application must be completed and returned to the Assessor’s Office by March 1. The Basic STAR applications do not have to be renewed.
