From the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance:
NEW STAR REQUIREMENTS FOR 2019
- To receive the Enhanced STAR exemption, you must enroll in the Income Verification Program (IVP). If you’re already enrolled, no action is needed.
- If you qualify for the senior citizens exemption, you will no longer automatically receive the Enhanced STAR exemption. You must apply for Enhanced STAR separately.
