NYS STAR (School Tax Relief Program) Exemptions

The New York State School Tax Relief (STAR) program provides exemptions from school taxes for all owner-occupied, primary residents, regardless of income.
As New York State moves from a STAR exemption to a STAR credit system, homeowners are encouraged to register for the STAR credit system, which may provide them with greater savings. Please click the headline for more details.
