You are not eligible for the 2020 Enhanced STAR exemption because your 2018 income exceeds $88,050

If you received this letter (Form RP-425-RDE), our records indicate that your income exceeded the Enhanced STAR income limit of $88,050 in 2018. Therefore, you are not eligible for the 2020 Enhanced STAR exemption.

For purposes of the Enhanced STAR exemption, income is defined as the combined incomes of all owners (residents and nonresidents) and any owner's spouse who resides at the property. Eligibility in 2020 is based on income from the 2018 tax year.

If you are otherwise eligible, you will receive the Basic STAR exemption because your income is $250,000 or less.

What to do next

You do not need to do anything unless you disagree. If you disagree, within 30 days, send us:

  • a copy of the letter (Form RP-425-RDE), and
  • a brief letter of explanation with supporting documentation.

Supporting documentation may include 2018 federal or state income tax returns for all owners (residents and nonresidents) and any owner's spouse who resides at the property.
