The Town of Ulster, Ulster County and the Saugerties School district participate in the "Persons with Disabilites and Limited Income" exemption which provides a partial exemption from property taxes on the primary residence of the applicant.  The amount of exemption for a qualified applicant depends on their income.

 

This Exemption must be Renewed each Year! 

 

OWNERSHIP:

  • All owners must be persons with disabilites
  • Exception, property owned by husband and wife OR siblings.  In these cases only one needs to have a disability

 

DISABILITY:

  • Applicant(s) must have a documented physical or mental impairment that substantially limits that person's ability to engage in one or more major life activities
