Important STAR Information
If you are a homeowner in
the Town of Hurley and it is an owner-occupied, primary residence,
and you make less than $500,000 you are probably eligible to register
for the STAR credit program.
The STAR program has
changed. It is now a credit. This will come in the form of a check
rather than receiving a property tax exemption. The check will be
equal to the amount of the exemption savings.
The STAR credit
program applies to NEW applicants only.
New applicants -
Basic, Enhanced must register with the NYS Department of Taxation and
Finance. The website is www.tax.ny.gov/star
New - Seniors
with limited income must register same as above, but also apply to
the Assessorís Office for any additional income based exemptions.
You will need a copy of your Federal tax return.
exemptions are still handled through
this office. Follow the exemption link for an application. Please
submit the application to this office by March 1st.
**If you already have
the BASIC, ENHANCED or ENHANCED STAR for SENIORS with LIMITED
incomes, nothing changes. **
you will be 65 by
December 31st, 2017 and have the Basic STAR already you can apply for
the Enhanced STAR. There are maximum income thresholds and they
change each year. You must reapply each
year to demonstrate that your adjusted income continues to be within
the program limits. Senior citizens who would like to continue
receiving Enhanced STAR in future years without having to reapply and
submit copies of their tax returns are invited to use form RP-425-IVP
to sign-up for the STAR.
