A recent memo issued from Nassau County Legislator Norma Gonsalves reminded homeowners in New York to be aware that New York State offers a STAR property tax exemption for all homeowners for their primary residence. The STAR program offers an exemption towards school taxes (there is also an Enhanced STAR program for low-income households.) All homeowners may apply for this exemption once and the application is automatically renewed each year.
It came to her attention that certain companies are sending out mailings to homeowners offering to file applications for the STAR exemption on the homeowner's behalf for a fee – as high as 100% of the annual exemption obtained. She implored homeowners to be aware that they may file applications for STAR Exemptions with the Nassau County Assessor's Office for free. The forms are simple, and there is staff available to assist applicants with queries Homeowners do not need to pay a fee or have a company complete the forms for them.Brochures and application forms are available at the Nassau County Assessor's office at 240 Old Country Road, Mineola or online at www.nassaucountyny.gov/agencies/Assessor/index.html. Note: for this year, applications for the STAR exemption are due on or by Jan. 3, 2011.
