ASSESSOR’S EXEMPTION IMPACT REPORT 2019
Section 495 to the Real Property Tax Law requires counties,
cities, towns, villages and school districts to attach to their
tentative/preliminary budgets an exemption report.
Exemption reports will provide taxpayers, policy makers, media
and the general public with greater transparency on property tax
exemptions and their effect on overall property taxes.
Exemptions are reductions in property taxes granted to certain
groups of property owners (e.g., non-profits, seniors, veterans)
and are paid for by increases in property taxes on all other
taxpayers (except for the STAR exemption, which is funded
directly by New York State).
