Information regarding exemption filing for 2018

Exemption renewals for Enhanced (Senior) STAR, Aged exemptions, and Disability exemptions, as well as  applications for new exemptions (including Veterans exemptions) are due on Thursday, March 1st.  For the convenience of the residents, the Waterford Town Assessor’s office will be open until 5 PM that day. Anyone having any questions about exemptions can call our office at the above number.

Beginning in 2016, all new home owners will receive their STAR discount as a rebate from the State of New York, rather than as an exemption on their school taxes. If you’ve previously had a STAR discount administered by the Town Assessor’s Office, your STAR discount will continue to be an exemption on your taxes.

New legislation requires all homeowners receiving a Basic STAR exemption to register with the NYS Tax Department in order to receive the exemption in 2014 and subsequent years.

The 2017 Final Town Tax Roll has been completed and is available for inspection in the Town Clerk’s Office during regular hours. The rolls will also be available in the Town Assessor’s office during normal business hours.  You can also view the 2017 Final Town Tax Roll online by clicking on the following link:

If you need help reading the Roll or understanding its abbreviations, the Assessor is usually available to help (call for an appointment: 235-9907).
