State Sen. Mark Grisanti offered the following on Monday:
I wanted to remind you that homeowners in New York state receiving a Basic STAR exemption must register with the NYS Tax Department by the end of the year, in order to keep receiving the exemption.
Registration has begun and you can register online by visiting www.tax.ny.gov.
You can also register by calling 518-457-2036.
Senior Citizens who receive Enhanced STAR are not affected by the new registration requirement.
For more information, or further assistance, please call 518-457-2036.
