Exemption Changes 2021

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:


  • Mail to: Building Department
                  ATTN: Sarah Feely
                  317 East Main Street

  East Rochester, NY 14445


  • 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.
