This American city is getting a tax refund

Residents of New York City in the United States can claim a tax refund. The refund is part of the city's school tax rebate program, which goes by the name STAR. The plan relieves homeowners and a portion of school property taxes. The last date to claim the money is Sunday 31st of this month.

The STAR program consists of two categories: Basic and Enhanced. The first has no age restriction and the second is for adults.

Those who are interested have the opportunity to change the basic to the upgraded one at any time they want, but at the beginning of next year. This function will allow the tax deduction to be posted to the invoice.

It is important to meet certain requirements

Citizens wishing to enroll in the STAR Basic Program must have an annual income of less than $250,000.00 USD. This option has an average tax reduction of $778.00 USD.

Residents wishing to access the enhanced plan must be 65 years of age or older. For New Yorkers who share property, the age limit applies to one of the owners.

A tax-exempt home must be the owner's principal residence. Annual wages of members and spouses of the Enhanced Plan shall not exceed $98,700.00 USD.

The average reimbursement for the Enhanced STAR Program is $1,407.00 USD. Candidates can claim these fees through virtual means.

You can also fill out a printed form, which will appear on the “Property Tax Benefits for Property Owners” site.

People who qualify for the STAR program receive payments through a credit or tax deduction. Debt free people can withdraw this money.
