Tax exemption application due Friday
Applications for real property tax exemptions, including renewals of Enhanced School Tax Relief and veterans exemptions, are due in the assessor’s office by Friday, Oneonta city’s assessor Mario Arevalo said in a media release.
Enhanced STAR applicants must be age 65 this year, own and live in the property and have a 2011 adjusted gross income of $79,050 or less, the release said. A first-time applicant must submit photocopies of a birth certificate, property deed and 2011 income tax return, and this exemption must be renewed annually.
Applicants younger than 65 may apply for a basic STAR exemption, which doesn’t require annual renewal.
For more information, call the assessor’s office at 432-2397.
