Southern Tier (WENY) - New York officials are trying to get more homeowners to register for the states STAR Property Tax break Program. If you haven't done it yet your running out of time before the end-of-year deadline.
     
State tax officials will help you if you need it. They will be available for homeowners from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. through Friday in seven STAR registration locations including in Albany, Binghamton, Brooklyn, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Long Island.
    
The savings from this program averages about $700. Homeowners have to reapply because the state is trying to weed out waste and abuse. State officials say 800,000 people still haven't registered with the Dec. 31 deadline looming.
