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, 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.
