The BASIC & ENHANCED STAR program is being restructured due to NYS Legislation changes. If you apply for the STAR property tax exemption beginning 2016 you must now register for STAR through New York State Tax Dept. NEW STAR registered applicants will receive a STAR Credit check directly from New York State Department of Taxation & Finance, instead of receiving a school tax exemption directly on their school tax bill.
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.
Register anytime at the STAR Resource Centerwww.tax.ny.gov/star OR Call 8:30AM to 4:30PM (518)-457-2036
