Have you registered for your STAR school tax exemption yet?
The NYS State Department of Taxation and Finance is reminding homeowners that they have until Dec. 31 to renew their eligibility for the tax exemption. The average homeowner saves about $700 a year through the program.
Homeowners must register to keep getting the exemption – but only once.
Also, seniors citizens receiving the enhanced STAR exemption do not need to re-register.
Anyone who hasn’t registered again should go to www.tax.ny.gov. People without Internet access should call (518) 457-2036 between 8:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
