This exemption provides a $1,500 property tax exemption on a property owned by a member of the clergy. Owners of co-ops are not eligible for the clergy exemption. If the clergy member is deceased, an unmarried surviving spouse can also get the exemption.
For benefits to begin on July 1 of the year you apply, you must complete the Homeowner Tax Benefits 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.
