Romaine, Resolution 2022-0057, the Town of Brookhaven Assessor's Office will grant the following exemptions on the 2022 assessment roll to all recipients of the respective exemptions on the 2021 assessment roll, thereby dispensing the need for renewal applications from such persons.

However, the Assessor's Office will require a renewal application to be filed when an owner who qualified for the exemption on the 2021 assessment roll, but has since changed his or her primary residence, added another owner to the deed, transferred the property to a new owner, or who is deceased. If so, please send proof of change with the renewal application by March 1st, 2022 to the Town of Brookhaven Assessor's Office.
