New STAR Requirements for 2019

To receive the Enhanced STAR exemption, you must enroll in the Income Verification Program (IVP). If you are already enrolled, no action is needed.

If you qualify for the Senior Citizen Exemption, you will no longer automatically receive the Enhanced STAR Exemption. You must apply for enhanced STAR separately.

For more information or to obtain forms, contact the Assessor’s Office (716.439.6614) or visit the New York State Tax Department website (www.tax.ny.gov) and search for IVP.
