Island Trees Superintendent of Schools Charles Murphy is reminding residents to re-register for the STAR tax reduction program, as the state requires it this year.
"This is an approximate $700 rebate for the average New York State home," Murphy said.
Recently, New York State has announced that about 800,000 homeowners have failed to re-register for this program, Murphy said.
"We hope that all Island Trees homeowners take notice and make sure they have re-registered for the STAR program," he said.
The deadline to re-register for the program is December 31, 2013. Please find the following link for registration information - http://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/star13/default.htm.
