Limited Income Senior Exemption Update

On December 18, 2020 the Governor signed an Executive order allowing Towns to automatically renew the Limited Income Senior Exemption, (RP-467) & Limited Income Disability Exemption, (RP-459) without a renewal application for the 2021 Assessment Roll.

What this means:  We previously sent out letters to those who receive Senior and Disability Tax Exemptions, with a specific appointment day and time to come in and submit your applications for renewal. At this time, all appointments as of this letter’s date have been eliminated, and exemptions for 2021 will reflect the same percentage that was issued to you in 2020. You are not required to submit the renewal application for 2021. 

New Applicants:  If you are a NEW applicant for one of these exemptions, you can do so by mailing in your application (RP-467) or (RP-459) or dropping it in our drop box prior to March 1, 2021. (See #1 & #2 below)

Currently you may submit the application completed with the items above attached, in ONLY the following 2 ways:

  1. Mail to:
    Building Department
    ATTN: Sarah Feely
    317 East Main Street
    East Rochester, NY 14445

  2. Drop in our Drop box outside of the Eyer Building. (The drop box is located in the back of the building where the big parking lot is, at the library entrance behind the flag pole. There are 2 drop boxes, please drop into box marked Clerks Office.

Assessment Department General Information

Assessment Department 0 9943 Article rating: No rating

The Assessment Department maintains an inventory of all parcels in the Town/Village of East Rochester in order to establish an assessed value for the equitable distribution of property taxes. All properties are currently assessed at 100% of market value.

In accordance with rules and regulations set forth in New York State Real Property Tax Law, the Town/Village of East Rochester participates in an annual assessment program. Annual assessing involves the yearly systematic analysis of all properties in the municipality to determine if they reflect current market values and making adjustments where necessary. Assessment changes may also be made due to change in use, and/or issuance of a building permit for new construction or demolition.

The Assessment Department also administers partial tax exemptions, as allowed under the State Real Property Tax Law, to property owners who meet certain eligibility requirements. Some of the most common residential exemptions are: STAR (School Tax Relief), Senior Citizen, Disability With Limited Income and Veterans. Applications are available for these exemptions through the New York State Office of Real Property Services web site, http://www.orps.state.ny.us, or by contacting the Assessment Office at 585-381-5151.
