ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Town of Pittsford announced it expanded tax exemption eligibility for seniors and people with disabilities on limited income.

The Town Board voted Tuesday evening to raise the income limit to $58,400. For a resident eligible whose home is assessed at the average value of $300,000 and an annual income of $50,000 or less, this means the homeowner will save $471 per year.

The town says that homeowners with annual income less than $50,000 are eligible for the full 50% tax exemption. The exemption phases out for homeowners with an annual income of at least $58,400.

Bill Smith, Pittsford’s town supervisor, says this exemption aims to help senior citizens and disabled members of the community ease their financial burdens.

“We encourage anyone who may think they qualify to check the information on our Town Assessor’s web page,” Smith said. “Those with further questions can contact our Assessor’s Office directly.”

Town officials say that the filing deadline for the tax exemption is Friday, March 1, 2024.
