IMPORTANT NOTICE
On December 26, 2021 the NYS Governor Kathy Hochul issued Executive Order 11.1 which waives the requirement of Senior Citizens with Limited Incomes (RP-467-Rnw) and Disability with Low Incomes (RP-459c-rnw) to have to renew their application with the Assessor’s office for the 2022/23 tax year.  On January 3, 2022 the Town of Collins acted on the Executive Order allowing our residents to remain safely in their homes, and not have to re-apply for their exemption.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?
