We intend to deny you an Enhanced STAR exemption because your income exceeds the Enhanced Star income limit

If you received this letter (Form RP-425-RDE), our records indicate that your income exceeded the Enhanced STAR income limit. Therefore, you are not eligible for the 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 is based on income from the tax year two years prior.

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 45 days, send us:

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

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

We will notify the assessor if you become income eligible for the Enhanced STAR exemption in the future year.
