New STAR applicants must now register directly with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance for the STAR check program. To qualify, the property must be your primary residence (1 to 3-family). Partial exemptions may be available for 4-family or mixed-used properties, limited to the portion that is your primary residence. Total combined household income cannot exceed $500,000 for the current year. NYS will require proof of residency.
