Deadline for the NYS School Tax Relief (STAR) program is March 1st
Most homeowners in Dix Hills, Melville and Huntington have benefited from the STAR program by saving money on their taxes. Every homeowner in New York State whose income is $500,000 or less is eligible to participate in this program.
If you have not already applied – or are not already enrolled – you will need to submit your application prior to March 1st. Download the Basic Star Application from the Town of Huntington Assessor’s Office.
However, if you are enrolled in the Enhanced STAR program for homeowners 65 & over – or with a household income of $79,050 or less you must verify your income every year. Enhanced STAR recipients may either submit a copy of their income tax return to their local assessor with a STAR application by the March 1st deadline or enroll in the STAR Income Verification Program. Download the Enhanced Star Application and the Instructions for filling out the form.
As a Senior you may be eligible for a limited income Senior Tax Exemption on your December 2012 tax bill – but your 2011 income cannot exceed $37,400. The deadline to file is March 1st, 2012 in the Town Assessor’s Office.
