Tax exemptions need to be renewed

Now is the season to renew property tax exemptions. Those seniors who had an exemption last year should have received a mailing by this time from the town Assessor's office. Those who received a green post card, do not need to take any further action: their Enhanced STAR exemption has been approved by the state Department of Taxation and Finance.

Those who received a yellow card, the state was unable to confirm their eligibility for your exemptions. Those who take no action after receiving a yellow card, their Enhanced STAR status will be reduced to the Basic Star exemption.

If you received a letter with a renewal form, you will need to complete the form and return it to the town Assessor's office with proof of income. For the Enhanced Star renewal, or form RP425rnw, proof of your 2009 income is required: adjusted gross income from your state or federal tax of $79,050 or less, minus taxable amount of IRA distributions.

For the RP467rnw, Senior Low Income, your 2010 income is needed, and includes income from most sources. A worksheet is available, or town Assessors will be glad to assist in figuring it out. Income must be less than $23,700 to qualify.
