Attention Residents RENEWING SENIOR OR DISABILITY EXEMPTIONS:

Governor Cuomo has passed an Executive Order that the Walworth Town Board has adopted allowing those with Senior or Disability Partial Tax Exemptions on the 2020 assessment roll to have their exemptions carried over to the 2021 assessment roll.

If you were planning on turning in paperwork to renew your application, you do NOT need to do so for this year. Your exemption will automatically be carried over.

If you made an appointment to come in for assistance with your paperwork, you will be contacted directly by the assessment department to confirm cancellation.

You will also receive notification via mail if you had one of these exemptions on the 2020 roll.

Please note this is for RENEWAL APPLICATIONS for SENIOR AND DISABILITY EXEMPTIONS ONLY.

All first-time applicants or other exemption renewals must complete applications and turn them in prior to March 1, 2021.

Please call our department with any questions or concerns.
