In New York State, under certain criteria, real property may be exempt from taxation.  Most exemptions are partial exemptions.  An exemption reduces one's assessment before the school, town, county, and/or village tax rate is applied to calculate the taxes on a property.  Certain exemptions (like STAR) only apply to school taxes, while others apply to the town, county, and/or village taxes.  

For a helpful overview of exemptions, please visit the NYS Tax Department 4-minute video, entitled "About Property Tax Exemptions" (see link).

The various exemptions have specific eligibility and documentation requirements.  Some of the most common exemptions are noted below. Links to additional exemptions are provided on the right.

STAR Exemption (School Taxes ONLY)

Are you a new STAR applicant?  If so, you need to APPLY for the NYS STAR Credit with New York State Department of Tax & Finance (NYS DTF).
