    Property Tax Relief Credit
    Posted: August 8, 2016
    Beginning this year and extending through 2019, a new property tax relief credit will provide direct relief to qualifying New York State homeowners.
    For each year you are eligible for the property tax relief credit, you will automatically receive a check. To qualify, you must:
    • live in a school district that is complying with the New York State property tax cap
    • receive either the Basic or Enhanced STAR property tax relief, and have an income of $275,000 or less.
    This year:
    • Upstate- each eligible taxpayer will receive $185.
    • Downstate- qualifying taxpayers will receive checks for $130.
    • The property tax relief credit will be in addiction to the existing Property Tax Freeze Program.
    Beginning in 2017, the property tax relief credit will be a percentage of a homeowner's STAR benefit, with lower incomes receiving a higher percentage benefit.
    The credit will be fully phased in as of 2019.
