ALBANY, N.Y. – According to the New York State Commissioner of Taxation and Finance, 900,000 homeowners have yet to register for their Basic STAR property tax exemptions.
"Register Now" postcards will begin hitting their mailboxes this week. The reminders are the latest in an aggressive statewide outreach campaign.
Six weeks remain until the December 31 deadline. The exemption is available on the primary residence of homeowners with incomes under $500,000. The need to reapply comes after lawmakers decided to try an eliminate wasteful spending on inappropriate STAR exemptions – citing cases where people have double-dipped and have received exemptions on multiple properties.
Senior citizens receiving the Enhanced STAR exemption are not impacted by the new registration program.
