How to report your property tax credit

If you received a check for one or more of the following credits, you do not need to do anything on your New York State income tax return, unless you itemize your deductions:

  • School Tax Relief (STAR) credit
  • homeowner tax rebate credit (HTRC)

If you itemize your deductions, reduce your itemized deduction for real estate taxes paid by the total amount of any STAR credit and the homeowner tax rebate credit received during the tax year; keep your check stubs with your tax records.

To verify if you received a check for the STAR or homeowner tax rebate credits, use our Property Tax Credit Lookup
