IMPORTANT MESSAGE  FROM THE ASSESSOR'S OFFICE:
SUSPENSION OF THE RENEWAL REQUIREMENT FOR THE SENIOR EXEMPTION AND  DISABILITY EXEMPTION

On December 26, 2021, the Governor 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 2022 assessment roll. In the interest of keeping our residents safe, the Town of Dickinson will be taking action to pass a resolution that waives the renewal requirement for both of the eligible exemptions for 2022: 
RP-467 Partial Tax Exemption for Real Property of Senior Citizens
RP-459-c Partial Tax Exemption for Real Property of Persons with Disabilities and Limited Income

This action will ensure that you will receive the same exempt status that you had on the 2021 assessment roll without filing a renewal 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.

STAR INFORMATION: New York State Department of Tax and Finance

To apply for the Enhanced STAR Exemption submit the following to your assessor:

RP-425-IVP Supplement to Form RP-425-E (include the Social Security numbers of all owners of the property and any of their spouses who reside at the property); and RP-425-E Application for Enhanced STAR Exemption.
