The Assessor’s Office has received several calls from residents asking if their STAR checks have been mailed out. lf your primary residence has remained the same since March 2015 you most likely do not receive a STAR check in the mail. lnstead, the STAR exemption has been directly applied to your school bill.
lf you purchased your house after 2015 and have applied with NYS to receive a STAR check, you will receive a check in the mail. Most residents have reported receiving their checks over the last two weeks. lf you have applied for the STAR check and are eligible but still have not received your check, you may check the status of your check with the link below. Once you have applied you will not need to register again.
lf you have not previously applied for the STAR check, you may visit www.tax.ny.gov or call 518.457.2036 to apply.
