New York State's School Tax Relief (STAR) Program

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with DDR Realty

If you own a home in New York State, you may be entitled to a school tax exemption. This exemption is know as New York State's School Tax Relief or STAR. If you own your own home and are not receiving STAR, contact your local town hall or your local assessor.

The information below is from the New York State Office of Real Property Services.

New York State's School Tax Relief (STAR) Program includes the Basic and Enhanced STAR Property Tax Exemptions, as well as the Middle Class STAR Rebate Program.

The Basic and Enhanced STAR Property Tax Exemptions are homestead exemptions. Basic STAR is available to anyone who owns and lives in his or her own home. Enhanced STAR is available to senior homeowners whose incomes do not exceed the statewide standard.

This certainly helps the home owner by reducing the tax.  I have heard from some owners who were not told by their lawyer or agent and lost out on an entire year of tax relief.
