Senior Citizens & Disabled Individuals Property Tax Exemption Renewal Requirement Waived
Supervisor Wojehowski advises that the Town of Cornwall waives property tax exemption renewal requirement for Senior Citizens and Disabled Individuals
On January 18, 2022, the Cornwall Town Board passed a resolution waiving the renewal application requirement for Low Income Senior Citizens and Individuals with Disabilities with Limited Income. This option was allowed by a recently issued Executive Order by Governor Hochul. The goal is to protect these people from having to file the applications with the Assessor’s Office due to Covid. For the next tax cycle. these individuals will receive the same exemption at the same percentages that they received last year without having to file the renewal applications. This same Resolution was also passed last year.
