Monroe County legislature passes tax relief measures

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The Monroe County Legislature unanimously approved three measures that could save you money.

The first one eliminates the 4% local sales tax on clothing and footwear purchases under $110. The other two proposals would expand property tax exemptions for seniors and people living with disabilities. Residents with incomes up to $50,000 will get a 50% reduction.

Previously, only people with an annual income between $26,000 and $34,000 were eligible for a 45% discount.
