Exemption Forms

The Assessment Department also administers partial tax exemptions, as allowed under the NYS Real Property Tax Law, to property owners who meet certain eligibility requirements. Some of the most common residential exemptions are: STAR (School Tax Relief), Senior Citizen, Disability With Limited Income, and Veterans. Applications are available for these exemptions through the New York State Office of Real Property. 

NEW FOR 2016:  Due to new legislation, NYS Tax and Finance (NYSTF) is changing the STAR exemption program.

Property owners with existing BASIC STAR or ENHANCED STAR exemptions will continue to receive the exemption on their school bill.

Property owners who are first time homeowners or who have never had the exemption before, will receive instructions from NYSTF on how to register for the Basic or Enhanced STAR exemption and will be sent a check directly from NYS Tax and Finance.

Please contact the NYSTF Call Center at (518) 591-5232 for additional information.
