IMPORTANT ASSESSOR INFO
Jeneen, Town of Collins assessor
The last week of December 2020 the NYS Legislature adopted legislation to WAIVE the requirement for the Senior Citizens with Limited Incomes and Disability with Limited Income renewal exemption process for the 2021/22 tax year.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?
YOU NEED NOT DO ANYTHING. We have the income you submitted last year on file. This legislation along with the Executive Order enables us to continue your exemption on next year's assessment roll by using last year's application. There is no need to risk in-person visits to our office during the COVID pandemic. You can remain safely in your home while still enjoying the tax benefits you received this past year. You can go to the assessor page for further info and links.
