All new homeowners must register with NY State in order to receive the Star Exemption. You may register online or by telephone at 518-457-2036.
There are two types of STAR programs:
BASIC STAR Is for homeowners' primary residence if their household income is less than $500,000
ENHANCED STAR is for homeowners age 65 or older. Income limits are set by the state each year.
Homeowners applying for the Enhanced STAR for the first time must fill out both applications and provide a copy of their driver's license for proof of age and tax return (please refer to the application for tax year needed with the application).
