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 has an enhanced STAR exemption and that is assessed at $150,000 and the enhanced STAR exemption for your municipality is $50,000, the school taxes on your property would be paid on a taxable assessment of $100,000 ($150,000 - $50,000). Please note that due to the 2% limit on STAR savings increases, the savings on your individual tax bill may not reflect the entire value of the certified STAR exemption.

The attached exemptions were determined using the latest data available. As more current data becomes available these exemptions are subject to change.
If in the future a revised exemption is determined which is five percent or more different than the exemption indicated, a new exemption will be recertified to that municipality.
Any recertification will occur before the last date allowed by law for the levy of school taxes.
