Changes to exemptions for property owners age 65 and over

Below is an important notice for property owners age 65 and older.

New STAR requirements for 2019:

  • To receive the Enhanced STAR exemption, you must enroll in the Income Verification Program (IVP). If you’re already enrolled, no action is needed.
  • If you qualify for the senior citizens exemption, you will no longer automatically receive the Enhanced STAR exemption. You must apply for Enhanced STAR separately.
