STAR Program

What is STAR?

STAR is the New York State School Tax Relief program that provides an exemption on a portion of school property taxes or a check to new home owners or first time applicants. The property must be used as your primary residence and your income can not exceed $500,000.

A more generous exemption is available for homeowners who meet the age and income requirements.

The Department of Taxation and Finance has additional information on the STAR Program.
