Star registration program had reached its deadline of December 31st, but as per the Department of Taxation and Finance website they are still accepting late registrations. New legislation requires all homeowners receiving a Basic STAR exemption to register with the Tax Department in order to receive STAR exemption.  

If you’re a new homeowner, you are probably eligible for Basic STAR. This lowers your school property taxes.  There is no requirement for length of ownership.  You must own your Home, be primary residence and earn less than $500,000 by the time you apply. For more information, go to the website listed below.  

Link for registration online is: or you can register by calling 518-457-2036.
  If you need help registering, feel free to call, email me or stop by the office.
