STAR Exemptions

    STAR Exemptions: (two types)

Basic STAR - Available for owner-occupied, primary residences where the resident owners' and their spouses income is less than $250,000. The first $30,000 of the full value of a home is exempt from school taxes.

Enhanced STAR - Provides an increased benefit for the primary residences of senior citizens (age 65 and older) with qualifying incomes of less than $90,550 for the 2021-22 tax year. The first $68,700 of the full value of a home is exempt from school taxes as of 2021-22 school tax year.

STAR exemptions apply only to school district taxes. They don't apply to property taxes for other purposes, such as county, town, village or library.

  Please note the STAR Program changes *

As a result of recent law changes, some homeowners will receive a STAR check directly from New York State instead of receiving a school property tax exemption. The amount of your benefit will be the same regardless of how you receive it. 

Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, new STAR applicants, to receive a STAR credit check, will need to register with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance (NYSDTF) at www.tax.ny.gov/star.
