Dear Valued Customers,
The New York State STAR benefit program provides homeowners with a partial exemption from school property taxes. In order to combat fraud the state has required participants currently receiving basic exemption to re-register for the program. Registration began on August 19th and continues to December 31st of 2013. Seniors who already receive enhanced STAR are exempt from the new requirements. First-time applicants are also not affected by this year’s registration guideline. To register visit the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance’s website here. To register by phone call 518-457-2036.
