Property owners in the Town of Amherst, including the Village of Williamsville, will begin receiving their new full-value assessment notices beginning after March 1, 2024. No new taxes are raised due to an assessment equity improvement project - the project merely redistributes the tax burden. Property exemptions will increase to their full amount. For example, the current Senior Enhanced STAR Exemption is $60,250. After the update, the exemption should be approximately $95,000 to $100,000. See attached document for complete details.
