Suffolk deadline for STAR tax rebate

Suffolk homeowners have until March 1 to file for the STAR tax rebate. The School Tax Relief program returns a portion of a homeowner's local school tax.

The program has two parts. Basic STAR is available to all homeowners for your primary residence. Once you apply for Basic STAR, you don't have to reapply unless you've bought a new primary residence.

The Enhanced STAR, which returns a bigger chunk of taxes, is available only to homeowners 65 or older by Dec. 31, 2011, with 2010 income of less than $79,050. Reapply each year for Enhanced STAR unless you sign up for Income Verification Program.

Suffolk residents must file the forms with their town assessor. For more information or to download forms, go to  You can check your town’s website for the forms, which are very easy to file out.  Then take them down to your town’s office and hand them in. Poof, the average savings on your property taxes are about $1000 a year, so it is very wise to make sure you apply for this savings!
