New Legislation Requires Basic STAR Exemption Registration  NEW 9/2013
New legislation requires all homeowners receiving a Basic STAR exemption to register with the New York State Tax Department in order to receive the exemption in 2014 and subsequent years. This is part of a new initiative to protect New Yorkers against inappropriate or fraudulent STAR exemptions.

Who must register?
Resident homeowners who currently receive the Basic STAR exemption must register with the New York State Tax Department in order to receive the exemption in 2014 and subsequent years.

Senior citizens receiving the Enhanced STAR exemption are not affected by the new registration requirement. However, in order to receive Enhanced STAR, seniors must continue to apply annually or participate in the Income Verification Program.

Resident homeowners applying for STAR for the first time are not affected by this year’s registration procedure and should contact their local assessor.

The Tax Department will mail instructions to all homeowners who currently receive the Basic STAR exemption. The letters will include a STAR code that homeowners will need to register.  The fastest and easiest way for homeowners to register is through the Tax Department’s Web site, www.tax.ny.gov.
