Call the Assessor’s office Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 8 AMand 9 AMto confirm that you have been approved for STAR exemptions. STAR exemptions reduce your school tax bills. Seniors, 65 or older, who have an adjusted gross income of less than $64,650 are eligible for tax reductions highlighted below. Everyone else who is a property owner and it is their primary residence, are entitled to a reduced savings which is approximately half of what you see below. Those property owners younger than 65 years of age and seniors who earn more than $64,650 only have to apply once. If you are entitled to the greater senior exemption, you must reapply every year unless you have previously given the assessor permission to receive the information from the state. PAUL FEINER
