The NY School Tax Relief (STAR) program offers property tax relief to eligible New York State homeowners. If you are eligible and registered for the STAR credit, the New York Tax Department will send you a STAR check in the mail each year. You can use the check to pay your school taxes. You can receive the STAR credit if you own your home and it's your primary residence and the combined income of the owners and the owners’ spouses is $500,000 or less. Corporations and LLCs are not eligible to claim STAR unless it is a farm dwelling.
Applies to primary residences only.
~$400 (varies by municipality)
