Real Property Tax Exemption
Churches must renew their property tax exemption each year. Renewal forms must reach your assessor’s office by the deadline date, which for most towns is March 1st. Check with your assessor’s office to confirm the date for your town. This deadline is critical. Missing the deadline date may result in the denial or revocation of your church’s real property tax exemption. This filing includes all church buildings, parsonages and all other parcels used for religious purposes.
To renew your exemption, use Renewal Application for Real Property Tax Exemption Forms
1. Organizational Purpose Form RP-420-a/b-RNW-I
2. Property Use Form RP-420-a/b-RNW II
If you do not receive a form in the mail from your town, they are available on the web at https://www.tax.ny.gov/forms/orpts/exemption.htm.
