Basic and Enhanced STAR application must be filed by March 1st. Applications that are received by that date and approved will result in lower property taxes beginning July 1st of that same year, which is the start of the Town's new tax year. Applications received after March 1st will be processed for benefits that begin the following year. Owners of co-ops also receive the tax reduction beginning on July 1st. However, management offices receive a report from Finance each November breaking down the total exemptions by apartment/unit. For this reason, co-op management cannot refund the tax reduction to individual co-op owners until November, at the earliest. It is left to the discretion of the management company how to pass along the tax savings to individual shareholders.
