STAR

The Basic and Enhanced STAR benefits save most New York homeowners hundreds of dollars.  That being said, the STAR Exemption Program is now closed to new applicants.  However, you may be eligible for the STAR Credit Check Program.  If you are a new applicant and you meet the eligibility requirements, you'll receive a check for the amount of your STAR savings.

  • You are receiving the Basic STAR exemption and wish to apply for the Enhanced STAR Exemption (for those 65 years of age)
  • You need to update a change in ownership due to:
  • Marriage
  • Divorce
  • Life Estates
  • Survivorship
  • Trusts
  • You should register for the STAR Credit Check if you:
  • Bought your home after the 2015 STAR application deadline
  • Never applied for the STAR benefit on your primary residence
