WARRENSBURG - March 1 is the deadline for homeowners to apply for their property exemptions for the upcoming 2010 property assessment cycle.
If a homeowner has purchased their home within the last year, and is using it as a primary residence, an application must be submitted to the town assessor's office by March 1 to obtain the STAR exemption.
Homeowners 65 or older seeking or renewing Enhanced STAR exemptions must supply the town assessor's office with their income for 2008 and a signed application by March 1. This exemption applies to seniors over 65 who earn up to $74,700.
The local Senior Exemption is another offering that applies to senior homeowners in Warrensburg who make $18,000 or less. This too requires an annual renewal with income figures provided and an application delivered to the Assessor by March 1. Also affected by the March 1st cut-off date are Veterans applying for Veterans exemptions. Those with Veterans exemptions already in place need do nothing as this automatically carries forward each year. For details, call the town Assessor at 623-3300.
