What if the state requests more information or denies my eligibility?

Current STAR exemption recipients, who do not comply with a request from the state to provide additional documentation to prove their eligibility, may risk losing their STAR benefit. Once a homeowner provides the state with the requested information, their registration will be updated and, if eligible, a STAR tax credit check will be issued by the state.

Recipients who disagree with the state's determination of their eligibility must send an explanation and supporting documentation (i.e. 2017 New York State or federal income tax returns), along with a copy of the notification, to NYSDTF by fax at 518-435-8634, or mail at:
