As a result of recent law changes, some homeowners will receive a STAR check directly from New York State instead of receiving a school property tax exemption. The amount of your benefit will be the same regardless of how you receive it.

Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, new STAR applicants will need to register with the Tax Department to receive a STAR check.

Current STAR exemption recipients

-- Current Basic and Enhanced STAR exemption recipients will keep their exemption as long as they continue to own their current home.

-- Current Enhanced STAR exemption recipients who are not enrolled in the Income Verification Program must continue to file a renewal application with their local assessor each year.

* The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance has developed a web based registration application, and phone registration for the STAR Check program.  To register or to ask questions please contact the State at (518) 457-2036 or online at
