To receive the STAR exemption OR credit check, you must own your home and it must be your primary residence. There are income limits for both the Basic and Enhanced STAR. The Assessor’s office will only be accepting Basic STAR Exemption applications if you had the exemption in 2015 and lost it due to excessive income. New Enhanced STAR applications will only be accepted if currently receiving Basic STAR (see below).
Maggie Alix, DirectorNote: The County Director must approve your application before you can apply with the New York State Department of Tax and Finance for the STAR credit. You will be notified by email if you provide one.
