Happy Holidays from the ORPTS Family to the Assessment Community!

STAR credit issued reports now available

Reports of 2019 STAR credit recipients are now available in the Online Assessment Community, except for Suffolk County, which will be published at a later date. See the STAR Credit Reports User Guide for instructions.

The lists include all 2019 STAR checks issued prior to November 13. If a check was issued on or after that date, it will not be on the report.

After reviewing the instructions, if you have questions, email real.property@tax.ny.gov or call the Assessor/Director Hotline: 518-457-9053.

Answers to your IVP Tool questions

Q. A homeowner is switching to the STAR credit from the STAR exemption. When I close the enrollment, what reason should I select?

A. Choose the option Created in Error. While it’s not a precise description, it will successfully close the registration. Of course, also be sure to remove the exemption from the assessment roll so that the STAR credit can be successfully issued.
