STAR Tax Exemption

Author: Communications Committee/Wednesday, August 21, 2013/Categories: General

Pursuant to new legislation, all homeowners receiving the Basic STAR exemption must register with the New York State Tax Department in order to continue to receive the exemption beyond 2013.  The registration period is open now, and it runs through December 31, 2013.  I highly recommend you go to this link right now, and register for your exemption. 

You will not have to re-register every year for the Basic STAR program, this is a one-time statewide registration.  Currently, registrations are done at the local level, and there have been problems with the local registration, so it is being moved to the State level.

In order to register, you will need a STAR code.  You can find them through the registration link.  Several counties do not have this online feature yet.  If that is the case for you, your STAR code will be mailed to you.  Once you receive the code in the mail, you can then use the registration link to register for your exemption.
