White Plains, NY — In response to the economic constraints of seniors living in Westchester County, Legislator Vedat Gashi (D – New Castle, Somers, Yorktown) and Legislator David Tubiolo (D – Yonkers, Mt. Vernon) have sponsored an amendment to our current local law which will expand the eligibility for property tax exemptions for seniors. Residents 65 years of age or older whose combined annual household income is $29,000 or less now qualify for a property tax exemption. Under the proposed amendment, the combined annual household income would increase to $50,000, benefitting more seniors across Westchester.
