Property Taxes Property taxation is limited to real property. New York State law gives local governments and public school districts the option of granting a reduction on the amount of property taxes paid by qualifying senior citizens. This is accomplished by reducing the assessed value of residential property owned by seniors by 50%. To qualify, seniors must be 65 years of age or older and meet certain income limitations and other requirements. For the 50% exemption, the law allows each county, city, town, village or school district to set the maximum income limit at any figure between $3,000 and $29,000. Localities have the further option of giving exemptions of less than 50% to seniors whose incomes are more than $29,000. Under this option, called the “sliding-scale option,” such owner can have a yearly income as high as $37,399.99 and get a 5% exemption in places that are using the maximum limit.

However, a taxpayer’s primary residence may be partially exempted from school taxes under the state’s School Tax Relief Program (STAR) program. Seniors can take advantage of this program that provides a partial exemption from school property taxes. All New Yorkers who own and live in their one-, two-, or three-family home, condominium, cooperative apartment, manufactured home, or farm dwelling are eligible for a STAR exemption on their primary residence. Click here for more information. There are two STAR exemptions: The Basic STAR exemption is available for owner-occupied, primary residences, regardless of the owners’ ages or incomes. The combined income of all resident owners (owners who live on the property) and of any owner’s resident spouse cannot be more than $500,000. Income is federal adjusted gross income minus the taxable amount of total distributions from annuities or IRAs. Income documents will be required to establish your eligibility for this program. The property must be the primary residence of at least one owner. Married couples owning more than one property can only have STAR on one property unless they are divorced or legally separated and can provide documentation to support their claim. The approximate benefit is a $316 tax reduction. The Enhanced STAR exemption is available for the primary residences of senior citizens (age 65 and older) with yearly household incomes not exceeding the statewide standard. All owners must be 65 or older by the end of the calendar year in which the exemption begins unless they are the spouse or sibling of an owner who is 65 or older by that time. For example, if you own the property and are applying for an exemption that will begin on July 1, 2016, you or your spouse or sibling must be 65 or older by December 31, 2016. The combined income of all owners and of a resident owner’s spouse cannot be more than $86,000. Income is federal adjusted gross income minus the taxable amount of total distributions from annuities or IRAs. Income documents will be required to establish your eligibility for this program. The property must be the primary residence of at least one owner. Married couples can only have STAR on one property unless they are divorced or legally separated and can provide documentation to support their claim. The approximate benefit is a $646 tax reduction.
