Typically, all property tax exemptions applications and renewals are due on March 1st each year. To protect the health of our seniors and disabled persons during the pandemic, New York State Legislature passed emergency legislation to permit automatic renewal of these two exemptions for applications that are due on March 1, 2022. The Wheatland Town Board voted to support this legislation and permit the Town Assessor to follow the NYS legislation (local action was required to implement).
Although you may have already received a letter from the Assessor, Wheatland residents who fall into either of these two categories do NOT need to renew in person or by mail to continue their exemption for 2022. For more information visit our Exemptions Page. NEW EXEMPTION APPLICANTS (FIRST TIME APPLICANTS) MUST STILL APPLY BY MARCH 1, 2022. Applications received after that date may be considered for the following tax year, but sometimes you may need to re-file updated information.
