Homeowners Can Reapply for STAR Online
ALBANY, NY (WENY) -- Homeowners in New York now have an easier way to re-apply for their basic STAR property tax exemption: online.
The State Tax Department is requiring homeowners to re-apply for the STAR exemption. This is in order to cut down on people getting the exemption on houses other than their primary residence.
Homeowners can expect a letter from the state with instructions on how to apply online. After that, you won't need to re-register again. Seniors who receive exemptions under Enhanced STAR will not be affected, as they already have to re-apply each year.
