This is a one-time process that must be completed by December 31,
2013. Basic STAR recipients will NOT need to re-register every year.
By now, you should have received a letter from the Tax Department
with your personalized STAR code and re-registration instructions. If
not, go online or call the Tax Deportment.
Registration can be done online at www.tax.ny.gov or by calling
(518) 457-2036. The online portal also provides a STAR code lookup
feature you can access by providing specific personal information.
Senior citizens who receive the Enhanced STAR exemption are
NOT affected by this new registration requirement. They must
continue to follow current Enhanced STAR procedures by either
applying annually to verify income or by enrolling in the automatic
Income Verification Program.
