Important Changes to STAR Exemption Program: New applicants who qualify for STAR must register with New York State instead of applying with their assessor. You will receive a credit in the form of a check, rather than receiving a property tax exemption. The dollar value of the credit will be the same as the property tax exemption. You can register online at the https://www.tax.ny.gov/ website. or by phone at (518) 457-2036. These changes do not affect homeowners who registered for the STAR exemption prior to the 2015 deadline.
