NOTICE TO RECIPIENTS OF THE SENIOR CITIZENS WITH LIMITED INCOME (RPTL S.467) AND DISABLED PERSONS WITH LIMTED INCOME (RPTL S.459-C) EXEMPTION RENEWALS FOR 2021:
On December 28, 2020, the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020 (Chapter 381 of the Laws of 2020) was signed by Governor Cuomo.
In summary, Part D of the above Act specified changes for the Senior exemption (RPTL S.467) and Disabled Persons exemption (RPTL S.459-c): an eligible recipient who received either exemption on the 2020 assessment roll is to continue receiving such exemption at the same amount received on the 2020 assessment roll, with certain exceptions (change of primary residence, added another owner to deed, transferred property to a new owner, or owner died). This order will expire May 1, 2021.
Therefore, the above exemptions will be granted at the percentage level that you received on the 2020 assessment roll, for the 2021 assessment roll.
THERE IS NO NEED TO RENEW YOUR EXEMPTION FOR 2021 UNLESS YOUR INCOME HAS DECREASED AND YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO RECEIVE A GREATER BENEFIT. YOU MAY SUBMIT RENEWAL APPLICATIONS AND INCOME DOCUMENATION BY MAIL OR USING THE TAX DROP BOX LOCATED NEAR THE MAIN ENTRANCE OF THE TOWN HALL BY THE MARCH 1, 2021 DEADLINE; OTHERWISE YOUR EXEMPTION WILL GRANTED AT THE 2020 LEVEL. MAILED APPLICATIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN MARCH 1, 2021.
ALL NEW APPLICATIONS (NOT RENEWAL) FOR THESE TWO EXEMPTIONS MAY BE SUBMITTED BY MAIL OR BY USING THE TAX DROP BOX LOCATED NEAR THE MAIN ENTRANCE OF THE TOWN HALL, BY MARCH 1, 2021.
Unless there are any additional legislative changes in the future, a renewal will be mailed Fall 2021 for the 2022 assessment roll.

To produce a fair and equitable assessment roll each year for the Town of Ogden and the Village of Spencerport by maintaining accurate records of real property ownership and physical characteristics; by carefully analyzing the local real estate market to determine equitable assessments that fairly distribute the total tax burden among all property owners based on the market value of their property; and by correctly determining eligibility for real property tax exemptions. The overriding goal is for no one to pay more or less than his or her fair share of the overall tax levy.
