STAR exemption amounts for school year 2019–2020: Otsego County

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).
