New York State's School Tax Relief (STAR) program provides eligible homeowners with relief on their property taxes. In addition to the original STAR exemption program, which provides for a direct reduction of your property tax, homeowners now have the option to choose the STAR credit program, in which you receive a check from the New York State Department of Taxation to apply to your property taxes. In some cases, homeowners may receive a greater benefit from the credit program than they have with the exemption program.
