What's Basic STAR and why do I need to register?

The Basic STAR exemption saves homeowners $700 each year on average.

  • The STAR exemption is available for owner-occupied, primary residences where the combined income of resident owners and their spouses is $500,000 or less.
  • All homeowners receiving a Basic STAR property tax exemption must register with the New York State Tax Department in order to receive the exemption in year 2014 and after.
  • This registration requirement is not satisfied by your original application to your local assessor.
