New for 2019:

Recent legislation has resulted in separating the Senior Citizen (RP-467) and Enhanced STAR (RP-425-E) exemptions. In the past the Enhanced STAR was automatically granted with the Senior Citizen applications or renewals.

This year, in order to continue receiving the Enhanced STAR exemption on the 2019/2020 school tax bill and forward, you are required  by New York State Department of Taxation and Finance to complete forms RP-425-E (Enhanced STAR Application) and RP-425-IVP (Income Verification Program) and submit them with your Senior Citizen application or renewal forms and income documentation to the Assessor's Office. The Enhanced STAR forms are a one-time application. Next year, it will resume back to the "normal" Senior Citizen renewal forms.
