NOTICE: The State of New York has made changes to the STAR Program as of the passing of the 2016 Executive Budget.

Newly qualified applicants will receive a STAR credit in the form of a check, rather than as a property tax exemption. The dollar value will be the same as the property tax exemption amount.

Who is affected?

  • If you bought your home after Aug. 1, 2015 you must register for the STAR credit under the new program.
  • If you bought your home prior to May 1, 2014 and already have a STAR exception you do not need to register. You will continue to receive your STAR exemption as usual.
  • If you bought your home between May 1, 2014 and Aug. 1, 2015, you must register under the new system if.
    • You bought your home after the 2015 exemption deadline (deadlines vary from town to town, most are March 1.)
    • You did not apply for the STAR exemption in time for the 2015 application deadline.
    • Otherwise, no action is necessary, and you will continue to receive the STAR exemption.
