In the April 2016 Budget, the NYS Legislature significantly changed the way the entire STAR program works. New exemptions on the school tax bill are prohibited, but are replaced by tax credits (initially in the form of checks mailed to you) from NYS Department of Taxation and Finance if the applicant registers with them. Pre-existing exemptions are unaffected if they were rightfully approved on the 2015 assessment roll. Pre-existing Enhanced exemptions will continue to be renewed in our office annually.
