Info on your property tax rebate check from Assemblyman Zebrowski

"Property taxes in Rockland County are much too high. These new expanded STAR rebates will help the middle class lower the tax burden. I will work to continue to lower the property taxes for Rockland County in the next session."

- Assemblyman Ken Zebrowski

Your hard-earned money is on its way back to you.

photo The New York State Assembly fought for - and won - expanded property tax rebate checks in this year’s state budget. This is in addition to the Basic STAR benefit eligible homeowners already receive in the form of a reduction in their school property tax bill. So the question is: How do you get your rebate money?
  • Property owners who receive Basic STAR will have to apply for a rebate check, and its amount will be based on income

  • The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance is providing these property owners with application instructions through the mail

  • Rockland County residents should receive their applications by the end of September

  • Qualifying homeowners have until Nov. 30 to apply

  • You must be a current STAR recipient to get the rebate check; visit for information on how to enroll

Easing the property tax burden

This year, the New York State Legislature passed a state budget that provides New York homeowners with $1.3 billion in property tax relief. Under Middle Class STAR, New Yorkers will see a STAR tax rebate based on a sliding scale tied to income. To find out how much you may be eligible to receive, visit or call 1-877-678-2769.
