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 by March 15, 2021, 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
