Per NYS Real Property Tax Law (ss 922,942):  A property owner is not relieved of the responsibility for payment of taxes despite the fact that his/her name is not properly entered on the tax roll and no statement of taxes was received by him/her. There is no provision of law which would permit a waiver of penalties and interest arising out of a failure to make timely payment of tax bills.

NEW STAR Information:

•           Changes in the STAR Property Tax Rebate for New Homeowners Only (those who purchased a home after August 1, 2015).

•           Rebate is now in the form of a check versus a direct credit on the School Tax Bill.  New applicants who qualify for STAR will register with New York State instead of applying with their assessor.  If they qualify, they will receive a STAR credit in the form of a check, rather than receiving a property tax exemption. The dollar value of the credit will be the same as the property tax exemption.

•           To check the STAR check delivery schedule: https://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/star/star-check-delivery-schedule.htm

•           New Homeowners must register with NYS Department of Taxation using this link https://www.tax.ny.gov/star/ by July to receive a check by September of the same calendar year or by phone at 518-457-2036.  Register for the School Tax Relief (STAR) Credit

Helpful hints

Looking up by name - type in exact spelling of the owner's last name

Looking up taxes by address - Street number needs to be exact - example 105-107 street number-if just using the number, all addresses with that number will appear

Street Address - do not include Street, Avenue, Drive, Place, Park etc.

If the exact street number is not known, just type in the street name, the whole street appears alphabetically by the owner's last name

Some streets have several different names, Perry Road, Rte 246, Wyoming Rd, Rte 19, etc…
