New STAR applicants will receive a credit in the form of a check directly from New York State instead of receiving a school property tax exemption. Visit New York State Department of Taxation and Finance or call (518) 457-2036 to register. Residents of the Town of Babylon can apply for the Enhanced STAR exemption (if you received a STAR exemption on this property for the 2015/2016 tax year) and other property tax exemptions between December 1st and March 1st through the Department of Assessment. The first-time application for Enhanced Star is available online or can be obtained from the Assessor’s Office in Town Hall from December 1st to March 1st. Please keep in mind that the deadline for filing applications is March 1st. If you have any questions, contact the Department of Assessment at (631) 957-3014.
