****REMINDER: ALL EXEMPTION RENEWALS OR NEW APPLICATIONS ARE
DUE TO THE ASSESSORS OFFICE
BY MARCH 1ST, 2018****
The 2017 TENTATIVE Roll is currently posted on the Town of Boston's Assessor website. Please click on the above blue box to search for your property to review the assessment.
As a result of recent law changes, the BASIC & ENHANCED STAR program is being restructured. If you have applied for the STAR property tax exemption beginning 2016 or you closed on your home after March 1st, 2018 exemption deadline, you must now apply for STAR through New York State Tax Dept. NEW STAR eligible applicants will receive a check directly from New York State Department of Taxation & Finance, instead of receiving a school tax exemption directly on their school tax bill. The amount of the benefit will be the same.
WHAT TO DO NEXT:
To be eligible for a STAR check, you must register with the New York State Tax Dept. by July 1st to receive your check in September or if you register AFTER July 1st, you'll receive a check at a later date.
