Relief coming for Henrietta taxpayers
Henrietta, N.Y. The town of Henrietta could be paying out $100 to qualified property owners soon, now that the legislation for the taxpayer relief has passed, Senator Gallivan and Assemblymember Bronson announced Friday.
Henrietta has a current surplus of $12 million, which the state Comptroller has deemed to be an excessive amount.
The town board approved a Taxpayer Assistance Program to help alleviate the tax burden on residents, which turned out to be $100.
The town of Henrietta has been extremely fiscally responsible these last few years, and the board rightfully wants to provide homeowners with much-needed tax relief, Assemblymember Harry Bronson said in a statement. This legislation would allow them to do just that putting money back in the pockets of hardworking families.
To qualify for the relief, Henrietta residents must be a property taxpayer within the town limits on June 1, 2014. Tax payments must be current and the property must be the owners primary residence.
The legislation will now be sent to Governor Cuomo for consideration.
