Basic STAR Re-registration
New legislation requires all homeowners receiving a Basic STAR exemption to register with the New York State Tax Department in order to receive the exemption in 2014 and subsequent years. This is part of a new initiative to protect New Yorkers against inappropriate or fraudulent STAR exemptions.
Who must register? Resident homeowners who currently receive the Basic STAR exemption must register with the New York State Tax Department in order to receive the exemption in 2014 and subsequent years. Homeowners do not need to re-register every year.
Senior citizens Senior citizens receiving the Enhanced STAR exemption are NOT affected by the new registration requirement. However, in order to receive Enhanced STAR, seniors must continue to: apply annually, or participate in the Income Verification Program.
When does registration begin? Registration began August 19, 2013 and will continue through December 31, 2013. The Tax Department will mail instructions to all homeowners who currently receive the Basic STAR exemption. Our area should receive this letter around the first week in September. The letters will include a STAR code that homeowners will need to register.
How does a homeowner register? Online registration - The fastest and easiest way for homeowners to register is through the Tax Department’s Web site, http://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/property/star13/default.htm . Homeowners will need their STAR code to register. In addition to being included in the instructions that were mailed to them, homeowners will be able to find their STAR code through an online lookup or by calling the Tax Department. Telephone registration – (518) 457-2036 Homeowners who are unable to register online will be able to register over the phone.

*TPCCA Announces Small Grants to Regional Organizations*
The Tannery Pond Community Center Association (TPCCA) is offering small grants to qualifying local and regional organizations to cover the cost of their use of Tannery Pond Community Center’s stage and auditorium. Because the Town of Johnsburg must now charge a fee for the use of the Tannery Pond Community Center in order to help defray expenses for the upkeep and utility costs of this building, small organizations that might wish to sponsor a debate, show a film, stage a play, hold a musical recital, or other event have found it difficult to raise the money to rent the space. In response to this the TPCCA, a local non-profit organization dedicated to serving the community by providing cultural, educational, recreational, and social opportunities for all ages, will consider paying the fee for these types of events for local and regional organizations who provide a completed, one page, grant application at least one month prior to the time they expect to hold the event. The TPCCA will respond to these applications within 10 days. Events that are not open to the public (or a broad spectrum of the public) or that are held for a single political candidate/party or a single sectarian cause would not qualify for this support.
Grant applications can be obtained at the Johnsburg Town Hall or downloaded from TPCCA’s website (www.tpcca.org ). Those wishing to support TPCCA’s efforts to fulfill its mission may send their tax deductible donations to TPCCA, P. O. Box 54, North Creek, NY 12853.
