REDUCING YOUR TAX BILL: 

SCHOOL TAX RELIEF (STAR)

NYS Dept. of Taxation and Finance Website

The School Tax Relief (STAR) Program is a State-funded school property tax reduction program which provides a school tax reduction for all “primary residence” property owners

There are two types of exemptions: Basic STAR and Enhanced STAR. Residents may be eligible for one or the other. To be eligible for either, you must own residential property (it should be your primary residence). Islip Town residents need to file with the Town of Islip.
