Sr. Tax Exemption Second Notice Mailing Solution Overview

New for 2024 – customers now have full control over the full text printed on your postcard. Our PT Portal & InFocus interface allows municipalities to fully customize the text in all areas of your postcards!

In accordance with the legislation for Senior Citizen Tax Exemption Notices that was signed into law on December 23rd, 2022 (link to legislation), ABS has developed a low-cost turnkey solution for counties and municipalities to satisfy the requirements of the law. With all municipalities in New York State required to send a Second Notice of Senior Citizen Tax Exemption to all property owners 30 days prior to their filing deadline, our ready-to-print solution can save tax entities precious time and valuable postage. This second notice is required by law, and many municipalities are currently struggling with staffing shortages, which could further complicate meeting this new requirement. ABS is here to help.

To begin your Sr. Tax Exemption Second Notice Mailing, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page, and our team will send you a postage request and provide login credentials for access to our PT Portal system where you can upload your RPS data and finalize the language on your postcard.
