Check Your Mailbox, New York Homeowners Have Money On The Way
The New York State homeowner tax rebate credit is a one-year program that gives homeowners relief, according to the Department of Taxation and Finance. Nearly 3 million homeowners are eligible to receive the rebate. In order to be eligible for the homeowner's tax rebate you must have:
- qualified for a 2022 STAR credit or exemption,
- had income that was less than or equal to $250,000 for the 2020 income tax year, and
- a school tax liability for the 2022-2023 school year that is more than your 2022 STAR benefit.
The amount of money you will receive is based on where you live, how much money you make and whether you got Enhanced STAR or Basic STAR. The Department of Taxation says that it can't issue a tax rebate check for less than $100.
The amount of your homeowner tax rebate credit cannot be more than the amount of your net school tax liability for the 2022–2023 school year after taking into account your 2022 STAR benefit
If you sold your home, but was still the owner at the time school taxes were due, you can still receive the money (if you met the other eligibility requirements). However, if you sold your home prior to the due date for school taxes, you should not cash the check. Return the check, along with a brief explanation to:
