NYS pressed the reset button on all homeowners’ star exemptions. Star exemptions are provided to owner occupied homes and NYS wants to crack down on anyone taking advantage of the star exemption that actually don’t live at the property.
What does this mean for you?
Even if you have been approved for the star exemption you will now need to re-apply and prove proof of the home being your primary residence. Please see the link below for the application and read the direction carefully for acceptable forms of proof of residency. If you have any questions feel free to call us and make sure you get it in prior to January 2nd 2014. Thank you!
