Exemption Deadline 2021 Approaches!

This is a friendly reminder from the Webster Assessment Office that all real property tax exemption applications to be considered for the 2021-2022 tax year are due March 1, 2021. If you have already applied, we thank you for your diligence! Whether applying new or renewing an exemption, this deadline is firm. 

A special note to Renewing Seniors with Limited Income and Disabled with Limit Income:  You may have heard that the last week of December 2020 the NYS Legislature adopted legislation to waive the requirement of Senior Citizens or Disabled Persons with Limited Income to renew their application with our office for the 2021-2022 tax year.  The benefits on last year’s roll are to be carried forward at the same level without application, with some minor exceptions.  YOU MAY CHOOSE to return your renewal application IF YOU BELIEVE YOUR INCOME HAS DECREASED and that you may be eligible for a larger benefit this year.  We mailed letters to this effect to each home with the details.  The deadline for applications is still March 1, 2021.  

For seniors, we are accepting 2019 income information only. No need to wait until the 2020 income taxes are ready (that will be used for the next renewal). 

Applications arriving in our office after March 1, 2021 will not be considered for the 2021-2022 tax year, and a new application may be required for our consideration for future tax years. Questions? 585-872-7051
