  • As the Dec. 31 deadline looms for STAR registration, state Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Thomas Mattox reminded taxpayers Thursday of weeklong STAR Registration events statewide.
    In the Rochester/Finger Lakes region people may register at City Hall, 30 Church St. Rochester. According to the release, 61 percent of homeowners in the Rochester area, or 9,923, have not registered for the Basic STAR tax exemption. Through Friday, STAR experts from the New York State Tax Department will provide direct assistance to homeowners at the sites.
    With four weeks until the Dec. 31 registration deadline, more than 1.9 million homeowners have registered for their Basic STAR exemptions. The statewide campaign seeks to register all of the eligible 2.7 million Basic STAR recipients.
    Tax Department staff will assist homeowners at seven STAR Registration sites statewide, including Rochester, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Dec. 6.
    To register online, visit www.tax.ny.gov. Or call (518) 457-2036.
