Limited Income Disability
Limited Income Disability Exemption
- A limited income disability real property tax exemption is available to any resident who has a physical or mental impairment, and has an award letter from Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board certifying disability benefits. A certificate from the State Commission for the Blind and Visually Handicapped or proof of disability from the United States Postal Service is also recognized as proof of disability under the law granting this exemption.
- New exemption applications are available at the Village Assessor's office beginning in July.
- If you already receive such an exemption, a renewal application will be mailed to you each year in July.
- Applications must be received in the Assessor's office by October 1. Applications received after October 1 will not be considered, even if they are postmarked prior to October 1.
For the 2010 / 2011 tax year, the income limitations for the Limited Income Disability property tax exemption are as follows:
|Income at Least||But Less Than||% Exemption|
Income Limit Guidelines
- Income for the purposes of this law is not the same as income for state or federal tax returns. One major difference is that all benefits received from Social Security count toward the income limits for the exemption.
- All exemptions are shown on the assessment roll as assessed value. To calculate the tax savings for any exemption:
- Exempt Assessed Value divided by 100, then multiply the result times the Tax Rate.
- A Village tax exemption does not apply to taxes based on the Nassau County Assessment Roll. You should also apply to the Nassau County Department of Assessment for any exemption offered by the County and applicable to your property. Deadlines and procedures may be different. Check with Nassau County Assessors Office or call 516-571-1500 for additional Information.
