The NYS Property Tax Freeze Credit and you

When New York passed its state budget, it enacted a property tax freeze credit for homeowners. The credit will be implemented as rebate checks for STAR-eligible homeowners based on property taxes levied by school districts and municipalities (village, town, county, library, etc.) that are subject to the property tax levy cap.

If a school district’s adopted tax levy is under the cap, as Schoharie Central’s is, homeowners will receive a rebate for the increase in their school taxes for the 2014-15 year. READ MORE
