The New York State School Tax Relief (STAR) Program provides an exemption from school taxes for owner-occupied, primary residences where the combined income of the owners and spouses who reside on the property does not exceed $500,000.
As a result of recent legislative changes, the School Tax Relief (STAR) program has been restructured.
New STAR recipients will receive a check from NYS instead of a school property tax exemption.

The exemption is available to veterans who served on active duty (exclusive of training) in the United States armed forces between September 2, 1945 and December 26, 1991, and who are not currently receiving either the eligible funds or alternative veterans' exemption.
