Star Program - Home Owners Must Re-Enroll To Receive by 2014 in NY

Real Estate Agent with Shahar Management

As part of the budget that was passed last week by the New York State Legislature, homeowners will have to re-register to receive Basic STAR benefits by April 1, 2014.  2013 tax benefits will not be affected.  

To try and prevent fraud in the STAR program, STAR will now be administered through the New York State Department of Tax and Finance.  Starting in 2014, homeowners with an income of less than $500,000 may reapply for the exemption on the first $30,000 of the assessed value on their primary residence.  This one-time renewal will eliminate those who are receiving the benefit improperly, either by having the deduction on more than one property or exceeding the maximum income level, by creating a statewide database accessible to all local enforcement officials.  Details about how and when the reapplication period will begin have yet to be released.

Hi Debra, This is very interesting and while we don't have this kind of program, it is interesting to know about other markets around the US and New York is a very significant market to understand.

Debbie, I don't think we have a program like that and although it doesn't sound like a lot of money, every little bit helps.
