Exemptions


(Return to the Assessor's Page)

Listed below are the exemptions the Town of Newstead offers its residents. Because exemptions directly affect your tax bill, careful attention should be paid to the eligibility requirements.

 

ATTN PROPERTY OWNERS

As a result of recent law changes, the STAR program is being restructured.  If you have applied for the STAR property tax exemption beginning this year or you have closed on your home after March 1st, 2016 deadline, you will now have to apply through new York State instead of receiving a school property tax exemption.  The amount of the benefit will be the same.
