STAR Exemption Certification System - Jefferson County 2014-2015 School Levy Year

The enhanced or basic STAR exemption is the amount that your assessment will be reduced prior to the levy of school taxes. For example, if you own and live in a house that is assessed at $150,000 and the enhanced STAR exemption for your muncipality is $50,000, the school taxes on your property would be paid on a taxable assessment of $100,000 ($150,000 - $50,000 = $100,000).

Any recertification will occur before the last date allowed by law for the levy of school taxes.
