NYSAA supports an Executive Order to suspend the requirement to renew the senior citizens age and disability exemption for one year by local option. A request sent to Gov. Cuomo in November is below.
Currently, there have been no official changes to the assessment calendar. Under the guidance of NYSAA President Scott Shedler, IAO, numerous discussions have taken place on the impact of COVID-19 on local government. We at NYSAA will continue to work with officials on how best we can proceed in the coming weeks and months. Check back frequently for updates.
The NYS Department of Tax and Finance has offered these Opinions of Counsel that may be of assistance to local governments. Please review and speak with your municipality's attorney for guidance. If attorneys have questions, they can consult with the ORPTS legal team by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to thank NYSAC, NYCOM, and AOT, as well as all levels of government, for providing outstanding information during this time of uncertainty.
