Reminder About STAR Rebate Deadline
ALBANY (WENY) -- There are just a few days left for homeowners in New York to re-apply for their STAR property tax rebate.
December 31st is the last day to renew your STAR registration. As we've been reporting, the state Tax Department is requiring homeowners to re-apply for this extemption. That's because the state is looking to cut down on fraud, and people getting exemptions for more than one property.
The good news is, you can apply online, and won't need to re-register again. The application process does not apply to seniors who are exempted under Enhanced STAR.
