Basic STAR Exemption
STAR stands for School Tax Relief. The STAR exemption provides a partial exemption from school property taxes. All New Yorkers who own and live in their one-, two- or three-family home, condominium, cooperative apartment, manufactured home, or farm dwelling, whose income is under $500,000, are eligible for a STAR exemption on their primary residence. To apply for STAR you must provide proof of residency.

Property owners who are granted the Basic STAR exemption generally will not need to reapply in subsequent years. However, Basic STAR recipients will need to notify their assessor if their primary residence changes.

Enhanced STAR Exemption

The Enhanced STAR exemption is available to primary residences of persons at least 65 who have a combined “adjusted gross income” that meets the NYS Tax & Finance limits. This maximum income limit is defined as the federal “adjusted gross income” minus any “taxable IRA distributions”. This exemption must be reapplied for each year and proof of prior income (2 years back) submitted unless you choose to make application for the New York State Income Verification Program. Renewal applications are mailed out to all seniors by January. This exemption applies to school taxes.

Lower Income Senior Exemption

Requirements for this exemption are:
-Owners must be 65 years of age
-The property must be the primary residence
-The senior must have owned the property for at least one year
-Owners gross income (including Social Security) must be less than the NYS Tax & Finance limit.
– “sliding-scale” option, offers a qualifying owner a 5% exemption in places that are using the maximum limit.
-Each year the owners must provide proof of their prior years income
-The exemption applies to town, county, and school taxes (depending on income scale)
-School taxes are not exempted if any children attending public schools reside on the property
