This is a four-year program: 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. It does not include New York City. There is an income ceiling of $275,000. To receive this rebate, your primary residence must be STAR eligible and your local school district must stay under the Tax Cap. The Association of Towns has projected estimated maximum rebate amounts for the program. These estimates are based on the, “School District's Maximum 2015-2016 STAR Savings by Municipality,” which is published by the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance. For 2016, the rebate amount is fixed by law. It will be: $130 for eligible taxpayers residing in Rockland, Nassau, Suffolk, Orange, Putnam, Dutchess, and Westchester counties; $185 for all other eligible taxpayers.

The estimates include only homestead properties for those school districts that have adopted such legislation. Estimates for Nassau County include only class 1 properties. Maximum STAR savings are allowed by law to grow up to 2 percent per year. These figures are an estimate; individual rebate amounts may vary.
