Home improvements exemption

Oswego County officials say only 17 properties have taken advantage of a local law that, since 2015, has allowed for gradual property tax exemptions on home improvements. Interested property owners should contact their local assessor.

A local law adopted in 2015 allows Oswego County homeowners making home improvements to gradually ease into the property tax increase they may face over the course of several years, and some county officials are shocked that so few people have taken advantage of it.

Legislator Shane Broadwell, R-Oswego, said the gradual tax exemption is “one of the best-kept secrets” for Oswego County property owners.
