The New Property Tax Exemption for Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers

As a result of FASNY’s efforts, the opportunity for volunteer firefighters and volunteer ambulance workers to receive a property tax exemption is now available. A new law (Real Property Tax Law § 466-a) offers this real property tax exemption statewide but the law requires each local taxing jurisdiction to opt-in.
