Oswego County Legislator Dan Farfaglia would like to see the return of a program that allowed a tax exemption for home improvements.
“When this option was available previously, homeowners were exempt from paying the full amount of the increased assessed value until five years after completion,” Farfaglia wrote in a memorandum to members of the legislature’s Community and consumer Affairs Committee.
“Under that law, in the first year of the increased value of the home, the owner paid no additional property taxes. Beginning in the second year, they paid a small increased amount. Gradually the amount paid increased every year and by the time the sixth year arrived, they were paying the full assessed value of the home.”
