This past Thursday, on November 7th, Governor Cuomo announced that letters are being sent to homeowners asking them to pay a fee to apply for the School Tax Relief property tax exemption, also known as STAR.  If this has happened to you, do not be fooled!  There is no fee to apply for this program.

There are two types of STAR exemptions: the Basic STAR exemption, which is for homeowners who make less than $500,000 annually, and the Enhanced STAR exemption, which is for senior citizens who make less than $81,900 annually.  If you would like to apply for these exemptions and are a resident of New York City, you can visit or call 3-1-1.  The deadline for registration is December 31st, 2013.
