Homeowners in Henrietta will soon get a $100 check in the mail.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has okayed the tax refund checks that were approved by the town board back in April.

This money is all thanks to a surplus in the town’s budget to the tune of $12 million. Earlier this year, a state audit found more taxes than necessary were being collected since 2008.

The Town of Henrietta board has been fiscally responsible, and with the governor’s OK they can provide homeowners with a much-needed tax relief, said Assemblymember Harry Bronson. “This legislation, having now been signed into law, will put money back in the pockets of hardworking families.”

In order to qualify for the refund, the homeowner must have bought their home before June 1, 2014, and must not be in arrears in the payment of taxes, charges or assessments due and owing to the town.  The property must also serve as the primary residence for the owner.
