This exemption provides a $1,500 reduction in assessed value on a property owned by a member of the clergy. If the clergy member is deceased, an unremarried surviving spouse can also receive the exemption. Co-ops and properties held in a trust are not eligible for the clergy exemption.
You may be eligible for the clergy exemption if:
The Clergy benefit must be renewed annually. The Department of Finance will send you a renewal application when it is time to renew your benefit. You must renew your exemption or your property taxes could increase.
For benefits to begin on July 1 of the year you apply, you must complete the application and submit all of the required documents by March 15. If March 15 falls on a weekend, the deadline will be the next business day.
Property Owners: You may also be eligible for the Disabled Homeowners', Senior Citizen Homeowners', Enhanced STAR and Veterans exemptions. Read More
