I'm moving to Port Washington, NY and recently seen my tax bill. How much do you actually save on School Tax from the STAR program (Im under 65 and have no kids).

Default Star Savings

From what I've heard and seen, the AVERAGE STAR savings in 2006-2007 was in the $700 - $800 range. This past year reports that it's increased by $100 to $200 per household. Gratz on your move!

Thanks for the input. I guess the huge school tax bill is part of the welcoming committee to Nassau county.

NYS changed the "filing" system for the STAR rebate. It used to be you filed once and it was automatically renewed for as long as you lived in a particular residence. NOW, you have to file annually (thanks Gov. Spitzer ) either by mail or online.

My STAR reduction dropped from $685 to $387, while areas like Hempstead soared above $800. My guess is the State's reasoning is that most of the people in those districts won't bother to file so the State will get to keep more money.

If you go to www.mynassauproperty.com you can look and see the tax bill for the housey ou are buying and see what star they recieved. You will get an enhanced star rebate , so if they don't have that withtheir rebate, yours will be slightly more.

Star savings are usually the same per school district town/ but varies from town to town. Mine is almost $1000 basic.

But then even with that i'm still WAY overtaxed anyway

I did not know that. I assumed that my star application from 2008 was valid and did not apply for star in 2009. Have I lost Star for 2010??

Yes, as long as this will be your primary residence, you may submit your STAR application at any time during the year, but it must be filed by January 4 to be applied to the upcoming school year.
You may call 516-571-1500, get an application at 240 Old Country Rd in Mineola (4th fl), or go to www.mynassauproperty.com.

If you are in Hempstead School District the STAR exemption amount is $1143 (for 2010).

Congratulations !!!!!
