Enhanced STAR can reduce school property taxes an average of $1,370 a year for eligible
Suffolk homeowners 65 and over with incomes up to $62,100.
Last year, the Assembly fought to raise income eligibility levels for enhanced STAR,
providing more seniors with needed tax relief. Now, it’s easier to keep your enhanced STAR
savings through the STAR Income Verification program – which eliminates the need to reapply
You must apply by March 1, 2003 to take advantage of enhanced STAR – even
if you applied last year – and don’t forget to sign up for the STAR Income Verification
program. If you’re ineligible for enhanced STAR, basic STAR could still save you an average of
$810 per year – savings too good to miss. Apply today!
