Andrea Macko reports for Porcupine Soup that the Greene County Legislature unanimously adopted a local law Feb. 6 to give a tax break to first responders. Volunteer firefighters and volunteer emergency medical personnel will get a county property tax exemption of 10 percent of assessed value for the primary home of a volunteer first responder. And any volunteer who has 20 or more years of service will be get the exemption for life. But Greene County Real Property Tax Service Director Raymond Ward says, “For the 20-year exemption you just have to live within the county.” Read the full story at Porcupine Soup.
