Optional Automatic Verification Program

The Optional Automatic Verification Program is available for seniors who receive only Enhanced STAR  and who file a New York State tax return. You must sign up for this program. The State of New York takes information from your New York State tax return to verify your  Enhanced STAR exemption without your coming into the office. You will receive a green card each year that confirms your exemption status. However, if you receive the AGED exemption, then you cannot sign up up for the Automatic Verification Program.

Special Notice: Applications can only be accepted January 2 through March 1st each year in the Assessor's Office. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Assessor's Office at 772-0357, ext. 13.
