Albany, N.Y. – State Senator Michael H. Ranzenhofer has introduced legislation in the New York State Senate to reinstate the STAR rebate check program for senior citizens. Senate Bill No. S6286 would provide seniors, who qualify for the Senior STAR exemption, with a rebate check.
“Property taxes are a serious burden for seniors, making it more difficult for them to afford the increased costs of staying in their homes. That is why I have proposed a bill in the State Senate to reinstate the STAR rebate check program and restore property tax relief to senior homeowners,” said Senator Ranzenhofer.
