Default Seniors & New Yorkers With Disabilities Are Getting a Property Tax Break Thanks to Le

Dear Friend:

Thanks to recent changes in city and state law, homeowners with annual
income of $58,399 or less are now eligible to receive the Senior Citizen
Homeowners’ Exemption (SCHE) or Disabled Homeowners’ Exemption (DHE). As
Chair of the Assembly’s Housing Committee and former Chair of the Aging
Committee, I was pleased to multi-sponsor this legislation in the Assembly
to make it easier for fixed-income residents to afford their
day-to-day-expenses and stay in their homes.

Who may be eligible:

* Seniors 65+ or disabled New Yorkers with annual income of $58,399 or less.

How it works:

* SCHE and DHE exempt 5 to 50% of the assessed value of your home from
taxation.

How to apply:

* Visit www.nyc.gov/sche or www.nyc.gov/dhe and submit an application by
January 16, 2018.

Why YOU should apply:

* You could save hundreds of dollars or more on your property taxes this
year!

Already receiving SCHE or DHE? Take no action! Any increases to your
benefit will appear on your January 2018 property tax bill—with a
retroactive credit to July 1, 2017.

Previously denied because your income was too high? Take no action! If
your income is $58,399 or less, we will apply the benefit to your account
automatically, beginning with your January 2018 property tax bill—with a
retroactive credit to July 1, 2017.

If you need more help or have any other questions, don’t hesitate to call
my office at (718) 743-4078 or stop by at 1800 Sheepshead Bay Road. We’re
open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday until 3 p.m. (5
p.m. starting September 8th).

I look forward to hearing from you. |

Sincerely, Assemblyman Cymbrowitz
