“Property taxes are much too high in New York State, which is why I fought so hard for property tax rebates. This year, they will help the middle class even more. I’ll keep working to find ways to lower the tax burden.”

Easing the property tax burden

Assemblywoman Gunther helped pass a final state budget that provides New York homeowners with $1.3 billion in property tax relief. Under Middle Class STAR, New Yorkers will see a STAR tax rebate based on a sliding scale tied to income. So the question is, how do you get your rebate money?

  • Property owners who receive Basic STAR will have to apply for a rebate check, and its amount will be based on income

  • The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance is providing these property owners with application instructions through the mail

  • Visit for the timing of mailings to your area

  • Qualifying homeowners have until Nov. 30 to apply

  • You must be a STAR recipient to get the rebate check; visit for information on how to enroll or contact your local assessor
