Applications being mailed out for STAR exemptions

Important information if you own a home and qualify for STAR exemptions on your school district taxes -- letters containing a new form for you to re-register are now being mailed out.
Earlier this year, News10NBC reported the state is asking everyone to re-apply for the program because officials are cracking down on abuse. In some cases the exemption was illegally applied to second homes and rental properties.
The new program will allow state officials to look up social security numbers and determine if homeowners are getting more than one STAR benefit.
