AS A RESULT OF RECENT NYS LAW CHANGES THE STAR PROGRAM IS BEING RESTRUCTURED.
NEW STAR recipients will receive a check directly from the New York State Tax Department instead of receiving an exemption on their school tax bill. The amount of the benefit will be the same.
Your Local Town Assessor will NO LONGER be accepting 'New' STAR Exemption Applicatons.
To be eligible to receive the STAR Program you MUST register with the New York State Tax Department by visiting www.tax.ny.gov or calling (518)-457-2036
