If you are a homeowner and pay property tax you must now register for Basic STAR each year beginning in 2014. HOWEVER, the deadline to enroll for the 2014 exemption is December 31, 2013. If you have not yet enrolled you will be receiving a second notice from the NYS Tax Department soon.
The deadline is rapidly approaching. Sign up now by going to http://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/star13/default.htm or call 1-518-457-2036 Mon-Fri 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM and Sat. 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. It’s easy to do. Please don’t wait.
