STAR (School Tax Assessment Relief) Exemption

  • Basic STAR exemption:  Most residents who own and live in their home are eligible for the NYS Basic STAR property tax exemption on their primary residence.  Basic STAR works by exempting the first $30,000 of the full value of a home from school taxes.
  • Enhanced STAR exemption:  Available for senior citizens (age 65 and older) with yearly household incomes not exceeding the statewide standard.  For these qualifying persons, an additional percentage of the full value of their primary residence is exempted from school taxes.
  • Learn more about the STAR program
  • Important Changes to STAR Exemption program:  New applicants who qualify for STAR must register with New York State instead of applying with their assessor.  You will receive a STAR credit in the form of a check, rather than receiving a property tax exemption.  The dollar value of the credit will be the same as the property tax exemption.  You can register online at https://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/star/default.htm or by phone (518) 457-2036.  These changes do not affect homeowners who registered for the STAR Exemption prior to the 2015 deadline.

  • STAR Rebate: In 2015, NYS created a new STAR Rebate for the years 2016 through 2019, which replaces the Property Tax Freeze Credit offered in 2014 and 2015.  The new rebate applies to homeowners who are receiving the STAR exemption and who live in school districts that pass budgets at or below their tax levy cap.  In 2016, the rebate will be a $185 credit for eligible homeowners earning $200,000 or less.  For the years 2017 through 2019, the rebate will equal the STAR tax savings multiplied by a percentage determined by the taxpayer’s income, with eligible annual income capped at $275,000.  The State will mail rebate checks to the residents in the fall.
