New Income Verification for STAR (School Tax Relief) Program

Changes to New York State law make the Income Verification Program mandatory for anyone with the Enhanced Senior STAR or Senior Citizens’ Partial Real Property Tax Exemption.

Basic STAR recipients do not need to do anything.

The new form you receive in the mail titled “Supplement to Forms RP-425-E and RP-425-Rnw Mandatory for all Enhanced STAR Applicants” must be completed and returned to the Assessor’s Office by March 1, 2019.

For information, call your local Assessor’s Office or the Office for Aging at 778-2411.
