Legislation eyed to give flood victims relief from taxes on damaged house

Monday, September 9, 2013

By John Enger Gazette Reporter  

FORT PLAIN — A big chunk of Tammy Erhardt’s 22 Abbott St. residence is long gone, but her tax bill is intact and right on time.

On June 28, Otsquago Creek flood waters tossed a neighbor’s house against her son’s bedroom, causing heavy damage. The Erhardts were gone at the time — more fortunate than the resident of the floating house, 87-year-old Ethel Healey, who died in the flood.

Erhardt feels lucky, but still was taken aback by the property tax bill that arrived in the mail last week.

“I basically have half a house right now,” she said, “but I have to pay the full tax.”

Senator O'Brien reminds homeowners to reapply for STAR property tax exemption

ROCHESTER, N.Y. --  Senator Ted O’Brien today reminded New Yorkers who currently receive the basic STAR exemption they must reapply before December 31 to continue receiving the exemption in 2014 and future years.

“The STAR exemption is one of the best tools we currently have to help protect New Yorkers from the crushing burden of property taxes,” Senator O’Brien said.  “The program was being strained by inappropriate and fraudulent uses, and this reapplication process will help ensure that this program is preserved for the hundreds of thousands who rely on it for tax relief.”

The exemption is for owner-occupied primary residences with a family income less than $500,000, and exempts the first $30,000 of the home’s value from school taxes.
