Personal exemption appeal forms and instructions are available on the Tax Commission's website or at their main office after March 15th each year. The TC600PE form has general instructions specific to personal exemption appeals.
Make sure to use the correct appeal form for the correct tax year. If you use a form for the incorrect tax year, your appeal will be denied.
The form you use depends on the exemption you’re appealing.
- SCHE and DHE appeals: TC106A
- STAR and Enhanced STAR appeals: TC106S
- Clergy and Veterans Exemption appeals: TC106CV
If you are appealing a STAR, E-STAR, SCHE, or DHE Exemption and the property has more than one owner, each additional owner must complete form TC106S SUP (Supplemental) and file it with the correct appeal form.
If you’re delivering your appeal form in person, you should also complete and bring form TC10. The Tax Commission office will stamp the TC10, so that, and you can keep it as your receipt to prove you filed your application on time. If you mail your appeal, include a self-addressed stamped TC10. If you email your personal exemption appeal, you will be emailed an acknowledgment of receipt, which does not mean that your submission has been reviewed and deemed complete.
