Gov. Cuomo warns of deceptive STAR program solicitors

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Governor Cuomo is advising taxpayers to beware of solicitors attempting to charge a fee for a free tax exemption program.

The governor says new homeowners have been receiving letters offering to enroll them in the school tax relief, or STAR, program for a substantial fee.

Enrollment in the program is free for New York residents, and Gov. Cuomo says it can save homeowners hundreds if not thousands of dollars a year.

Homeowners have until December 31, 2013 to register by telephone or online. Register online at www.tax.ny.gov or register by phone by calling #518-457-2036.
