[anvplayer video=”5193520″ station=”998132″]

Property owners in Schenectady County will soon see some relief when it comes to their tax bills.

Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara’s bill, authorizing Schenectady County to grant a $250 taxpayer assistance payment to people with qualifying star or enhanced star exemptions, has been signed into law.

Homeowners who qualified as of December 31 of last year will receive a check.

There is no word yet on when those checks will start going out.
