WayneTwp: Notes from the Assessor

Notes from the Assessor

From the October / November 2017 Senior Center Newsletter:

2017 Assessments
My staff and I are near completion of the 2017 Assessments. Most assessed values in Wayne Township will increase for 2017, based on the improvements in the real estate market that have occurred for the past three years. Wayne Township assessments will receive a Township Equalization Factor of approximately 4.7%. When we complete the 2017 assessments, the Equalization Notice will be published in the Examiner newspapers, most likely in mid-October.

Senior Citizens Assessment Freeze Exemption
Because assessed valuations will be increasing again this year, applicants for the Senior Citizens Assessment Freeze Exemption will continue to see additional relief on their tax bills.

To qualify for the exemption, you must have owned and occupied the property on both January 1, 2016 and January 1, 2017, and have a 2016 total household income of $55,000 or less.

If you have not yet applied for the Senior Freeze Exemption for 2017 (payable 2018), you can apply at my office. Although the official application deadline is October 1, 2017, applications will be accepted after that date. Please bring your 2016 U.S. 1040 Form and SSA-1099 forms.
