On January 12, 2022, at 7PM, the North East Joint Fire District conducted a public hearing on New York State Real Property Tax Law Section 466-k. This new legislation recently passed by the New York State Legislature and signed by Governor Hochul provides for up to a 10% discount on the assessed value property tax levied by local governments in Monroe County. These governments include the County of Monroe, towns, villages, school districts and fire districts. Each government entity in Monroe County must hold a public hearing on the matter and if they choose to enact the exemption must adopt a local law or pass an applicable resolution.

An example document provided during the public hearing listed the possible North East Joint Fire District property tax exemption savings for eligible and enrolled volunteer first responders to be approximately:

Assessed Value: $125,000 Annual Fire District Property Tax Exemption: $14.37
Assessed Value: $225,000 Annual Fire District Property Tax Exemption: $25.87
Assessed Value: $335,000 Annual Fire District Property Tax Exemption: $38.52

One citizen addressed the Board of Fire Commissioners on the matter and spoke in favor of the exemption for local volunteer first responders. During the regular Board meeting the Fire Commissioners unanimously voted in favor of the partial property tax exemption and passed resolution 2022-40. (Attached)
