STAR Credit

If you have recently purchased your home or you have never applied for the STAR benefit on your current home, you may be able to save hundreds of dollars each year. You only need to register for the STAR credit once, any you'll continue to receive the annual benefit as long as you're eligible.


If your income is between $250,000 and $500,000:

If you currently receive the Basic STAR exemption and your income is between $250,000 and $500,000, the program is changing for you. If eligible, you will now receive a check for the STAR credit instead of the reduction on your school tax bill.

If you receive a letter asking you to update your STAR registration (Form RP-425-RDM), see Update registration.


If your income is is $250,000 or less:

If you currently receive the STAR exemption, you can choose to register for the STAR credit to receive a check instead; you may receive a greater benefit.

See Register for the STAR credit to make the switch.
