STAR EXEMPTION PROGRAM UPDATE 2016
New York State is not doing away with the STAR Exemption program!
A basic overview of the “STAR Program“
The STAR Exemption is New York State’s School Tax Relief Program. It has been around for over 15 years helping provide tax relief to homeowners on their school tax bills. If you qualify it lowers your school property tax with a rebate program. Any New Yorker who owns and lives in their one, two, or three family home, condominium, cooperative apartment, manufactured home, or farm dwelling can be eligible for STAR on their primary residence. The applications are found online or at the local town or city assessors office where taxes are paid for that property.
