Due to a new law passed in response to COVID-19, most Senior Citizen Homeowners’ Exemption (SCHE) and Disabled Homeowners’ Exemption (DHE) recipients are not required to renew their benefits this year. We will mail you a renewal letter if you need to take any action; otherwise, your benefit will be automatically renewed at its current level and you will continue to receive it.
Note: If your income decreased in 2020, you have the option to submit a renewal application so that we can determine whether you are eligible for a larger benefit. Please note that if your income last year was less than $50,000, you are almost certainly receiving the largest possible benefit.
