Property Tax Rebate

May 2016

New York State’s new Property Tax Rebate replaces the more well-known property tax freeze credit that provided property tax rebate checks to eligible taxpayers in 2014 and 2015. This rebate applies to the years 2016 through 2019 and is for homeowners who receive the STAR exemption and who live in school districts that pass budgets at or below their tax levy cap. Because the Ichabod Crane Central School District stayed within its tax cap this year, eligible taxpayers making less than $200,000 a year should receive a rebate check for $185 from New York State in the fall.
