The Town of Narragansett implemented the Homestead exemption in 2017. For the next several years following that, we had all taxpayers receiving this exemption “renew” their status, with a one page application/declaration stating that all documentation submitted with their original application had not changed. Sending out renewals and receiving them on time became a nightmare; hence the reasoning for not having these exemptions become renewable. We sent out notices in 2020 to all taxpayers receiving the homestead that they would no longer need to submit renewal applications to maintain their exemption.
We do require our 65 and older residents receiving our variable exemption to submit paperwork annually, as this exemption is based on income levels.
