2019 Changes to Exemptions for Property Owners Age 65 and Over
Senior citizens exemption recipients must apply for Enhanced STAR separately
In the past, older adults who qualified for the Partial Tax Exemption for Real Property of Senior Citizens (also known as the senior citizens or aged exemption) were automatically granted the Enhanced STAR exemption.
Due to changes in New York State law, beginning with applications for 2019, you must apply separately for the senior citizens exemption and the Enhanced STAR exemption.
To apply for or renew the Enhanced STAR exemption, follow the instructions outlined in the attached pamphlet.
To apply for or renew the senior citizens exemption, file the applicable form below with your assessor:
first-time applicants must file Form RP-467, Application for Partial Tax Exemption for Real Property of Senior Citizens
renewal applicants must file Form RP-467-Rnw, Renewal Application for Partial Tax Exemption for Real Property of Senior Citizens
