Earlene Hooper fought for – and won – property tax rebate checks in this year’s
state budget. This is in addition to the Enhanced STAR benefit eligible homeowners
already receive in the form of a reduction in their school property tax bill. So the
question is, how do you get your rebate money?
Conveniently, seniors who receive Enhanced STAR will receive a rebate check
You must be a STAR recipient to get the rebate check; visit
www.orps.state.ny.us/star/faq.htm for information
on how to enroll and an application.
Senior households that make more than $70,650 aren’t eligible for Enhanced STAR,
but may apply for Basic STAR.
Easing the property tax burden
Earlene Hooper helped pass a final state budget that provides New York homeowners
with $1.3 billion in property tax relief. To find out how much of a rebate you may be
