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:NYS Tax DepartmentORPTS STAR ResolutionUnit- 425 RDSW A Harriman CampusAlbany, NY 12227-0801
To apply for the STAR credit or to switch from the STAR exemption to the STAR credit, please visit the STAR website or call 518-457-2036 weekdays, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Once registered for the STAR credit, homeowners will not need to register again in the future, unless there has been a change in homeownership. The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance will review STAR credit registrations each year to determine whether a homeowner is eligible for the Basic or Enhanced STAR credit and will issue a check for the respective benefit.
