Enhanced STAR, senior exemptions deadline

February 15, 2019
Lake Placid News

To the editor:

For residents 65 years of age and older, the deadline to renew your Enhanced STAR and senior citizens exemptions is Friday, March 1.

At least one owner needs to be 65 years of age (or turning 65 before 12/31/19). Eligibility is based on income reported to the IRS and New York state in 2017 for all owners and anyone else living in the home. The maximum income to receive Enhanced STAR is $86,300 and the maximum for the Senior Citizens exemption is $33,000. For those who are no longer required to file tax returns, there is a worksheet to verify income.

These exemptions are very important to our older citizens and we don't want to see anyone lose them simply because they didn't renew. North Elba residents were sent renewal applications in November, so if they have been misplaced or help is needed completing them, please visit our office at the North Elba Town Hall or call our exemption coordinator, Deb Mueller, at (518) 523-1975. For those who don't live in the Town of North Elba, please contact your town assessor.

More information about these exemptions is also available at the following websites: www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/star/eligibility.htm and www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/exemption/seniorexempt.htm.

Sincerely,

Todd Anthony

Assessor, town of North Elba
