New STAR applicants will receive a credit in the form of a check directly from New York instead of receiving a school property tax exemption. The amount of your STAR benefit is the same regardless of how you receive it.
New Basic and Enhanced STAR applicants need to register with the New York State Tax Department to receive a STAR check. Please Click Here to learn more or to register with New York State.
