Senator Hoylman Urges State to Extend Registration Deadline for Star Property Tax Exemption

New York, NY— Alarmed by reports of low Basic STAR registration rates by New York City homeowners, New York State Senator Brad Hoylman sent a letter to New York State Department of Taxation and Finance Commissioner Thomas Mattox on Wednesday urging him to extend the December 31, 2013 registration deadline and to continue outreach efforts to ensure all eligible homeowners – including thousands of co-op and condo owners in Senator Hoylman’s district – are registered. The 2013-2014 state budget grants Commissioner Mattox the authority to set the final deadline for registration, so long as it is no later than April 1, 2014.
