What is STAR?

There have been some updates this year to the New York State STAR program as it relates to school tax bills and exemptions. Please visit, https://www.tax.ny.gov/star/ to review these changes and qualifications.

The NYS Department of Taxation and Finance defines the School Tax Relief (STAR) program as providing eligible homeowners in New York State with relief on their property taxes.

If you're a STAR recipient, you receive the benefit in one of two ways:

  • the STAR credit program (open to any eligible homeowner whose income is $500,000 or less)—you receive a check in the mail from the Tax Department to apply to your school taxes 
     
  • the STAR exemption program (now closed to new applicants)—you receive a direct reduction on your school tax bill in the form of a property tax exemption

Enhanced STAR, which provides increased savings, is available to qualifying senior citizens ages 65 and older in both the credit and exemption programs; visit https://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/star/eligibility.htm.
