STAR (School Tax Relief)
New for 2016
New STAR applicants will receive a credit in the form of a check directly from NYS instead of receiving a school property tax exemption. The amount of your STAR benefit is the same regardless of how you receive it. New Basic and Enhanced STAR applicants need to register with the New York State Department to receive a STAR check. Visit www.tax.ny.gov or call (518-457-2036 for further information, deadline and eligibility.
