The Town of Evans and Lake Shore Central School District are offering to help homeowners apply for next year’s STAR tax exemption.
“Help Homeowners with STAR” will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday in the media center of Lake Shore Central High School, 959 Beach Road, where homeowners will receive assistance registering for the exemption online.
All homeowners currently receiving a Basic STAR tax exemption must now register with the New York State Tax Department by Dec. 31 in order to receive the STAR exemption in 2014.
Eighty-one percent of Evans homeowners have filed, but 780 households have yet to reapply, according to town officials.
If you haven’t already registered and need help, bring the letter or postcard you received from the state Tax Department – which contains your STAR Code – along with the Social Security numbers of all property owners.
Also this week:
• A meeting of the Angola Village Board begins at 7 p.m. Monday in the board room at Angola Village Hall, 41 Commercial St.
• The Evans Town Board will have a work session at 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday in Town Hall, 8787 Erie Road.
