Exemptions provide opportunities for qualifying property owners to have a portion of their assessed value exempted from tax liability. The standards for all exemptions are established through New York State Real Property Tax Law. All exemptions established by New York State are available to the entire State. However, for specific exemptions to be available to constituents, they must be approved by the County and/or Local governments to be effective. Each exemption has specific qualifying requirements that are described in the contents of the exemption application or accompanying instructions.
Herkimer County and/or the Town of Webb have authorized the following exemptions: Town-General, School District; General Municipality, Clergy Residence, Not-for-Profit Religious and others; Volunteer Fire Departments, Private Cemetery, Alternative Veterans; War-Veterans; Combat Veteran, Veteran Disability, Cold War Veteran, Clergy, Agricultural, Aged-All, Aged-Town, STAR Enhanced, STAR Basic, Persons with Disabilities & Limited Income, Forest, Business.
The deadline for filing any exemption application is March 1 (Taxable Status Date). Some exemptions require an annual renewal while others do not.
