  • S.T.A.R. Exemption

    What is a STAR exemption?

    STAR stands for School TAx Relief. There are two types of STAR exemptions; Basic STAR and Enhanced (senior) STAR.

    What is the difference?

    The Basic STAR exemption is available to all owner occupied residences and need only be applied for once.
    The Enhanced (senior) STAR exemption is available only to primary residences of persons at least 65 who have a combined gross income less than $86,000 per year. This exemption must be reapplied for each year and proof of income submitted. Renewal applications are mailed out to all seniors in September.
