131,000 out of 564,000 BASIC STAR recipients in NYC who have not yet renewed their property tax exemption are at serious risk of losing an exemption worth approximately $300 on their property tax bill!!
The deadline has already passed (it was Dec 31), but the State is still taking renewals – note this is a one-time only STATE requirement. It is unclear how long the STATE will continue to accept renewals, so homeowners & cop/condo owners should renew ASAP if they have not already.
To renew, you must go to the following website: http://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/star13/default.htm or call 518-457-2036. It is a very quick and easy renewal process (only a few minutes long). DO NOT fill out an application from the City’s website – you MUST GO TO THE STATE to renew!!!!
Note this renewal information does not apply to enhanced STAR recipients.
