NYS Offers Optional Switch from STAR Exemption to STAR Credit
New York State Offers Optional Switch from STAR Exemption to STAR Credit
In summary, anyone who has the STAR exemption does not pay school taxes on their exempted assessed value amount. Anyone who has the STAR credit pays school taxes on their full assessed amount and is given a STAR rebate check after they pay the full amount of their school taxes.
Lyons School District is not advising you to keep the STAR Exemption or switch to the STAR Credit. We are simply notifying you of the program offered by New York State. The link below contains more information.
