Last year it is estimated that over 13,000 NY residents that were to receive a check in the mail for STAR property tax relief, threw the checks out thinking that maybe it was junk mail.

These checks are due out again starting after Nov 1.

If you qualify for Basic STAR and Enhanced STAR, the checks will come automatically in the mail. Keep an eye out for it and do not throw it away.

In order to qualify for a check, you must;
1) Live in a school district that is under the tax cap.
2) Get either Basic or Enhanced STAR
3) Earn $275,000 or less
4) Have paid your school property taxes in 2017

It is one of those envelopes where you tear off the borders in order to see the mail inside and the return address should say NY State Dept of Taxation and Finance.
