Any owners currently receiving the STAR Exemption will stay with the Assessors' office by renewing the Enhanced Star or going from Basic to Enhanced. You will still receive the STAR savings off your school tax bill.
After March 2, 2016 as a result of recent law changes, the STAR program is being reconstructed. NYS has decided that the Tax & Finance Department will administer New Star applications.
More Information from the NYS Tax Department on changes in how certain homeowners will apply for STAR, and in how they receive their STAR benefit.
