Dear Wawayanda Homeowners:

Are you turning 65 before December 31, 2021? Is your gross annual income less than $88,000? Is your home in Wawayanda your primary residence?
If you answered yes to those 3 questions, Please come in to the Town of Wawayanda Assessor’s Office before March 1, 2021. You may be eligible for The Enhanced Star Tax Exemption.
Please bring in the following:

Proof of age (a driver’s License or Birth Certificate )
Proof of Income (2019 federal tax return)





Please be Aware of Property Tax Appeal Companies that are mass mailings Wawayanda Homeowners. The Tax appeal companies are  trying to have homeowners sign up to review the property assessment.  The companies will charge a large fee if you receive any reduction. In the fine print there is also a $75 fee for an appraisal and a $30 court filing fee. Sometimes a penalty fee is also added if you decide to withdraw your case.

Please contact the Assessor’s Office before you sign anything. We have an open door policy. 
845-355-5700 ext. 9.  We will gladly review your assessment and property records with you and make any necessary adjustments.  It’s our job, and WE WON'T CHARGE YOU!

Another unnecessary expense is companies offering to obtain a copy of your deed for a large fee.
Again, contact the Assessor’s office. 99% of the time your deed is on file in our office. We can make a copy for you.
