From the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance:
- 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.
- If you would like to apply for the BASIC STAR, please register with New York State at 518-457-2036 or at www.tax.ny.gov
- All other exemptions and renewals are due to the Claverack Assessor by March 1st.
For more information or to obtain forms, contact the Assessor’s office at 518-672-7911 ext. 102 or 103, Monday and Wednesday from 9am-2pm, or visit the New York State Tax Department’s website at http://www.tax.ny.gov/star/default.htm (search: IVP) .
