There still may be as many as 4,000 South Huntington School District homeowners who have yet to reapply for their STAR Tax rebates. Are you one of them?

The School Tax Relief Program (STAR) provides homeowners with valuable tax relief and the savings are clearly indicated in their property tax bills. “I strongly encourage homeowners who may be eligible for the STAR program to reapply,” said Mr. Lawrence Light, South Huntington School District’s Interim Business Administrator. “Whether your applying for the first time, or reapplying, which is mandatory this year, the process is simple and may be accomplished quickly, either on the phone or online.” The deadline to reapply is December 31.

In compliance with new guidelines meant to prevent fraud and abuse of STAR benefits, participants must sign up by telephone or online with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance to continue their exemptions for 2014 and beyond. To register by phone call (518) 457-2036.
