Register by JULY 1ST to receive your STAR CREDIT CHECK in 2018
Unless there’s been a change in ownership, please do not register again. Your information will be reviewed every year and automatically your STAR credit check will be sent to you if you’re eligible.
If you’ve recently bought your home or you’ve never applied for the STAR benefit on your current home, you may be able to save hundreds of dollars each year. You only need to register for the STAR credit once, and you’ll continue to receive the annual benefit as long as you’re eligible.

- approximate date the owners purchased the property and the name of the sellers
