NYers must re-register for school tax break

ALBANY, N.Y.(AP)- All New Yorkers receiving the STAR property tax rebate will have to re-register for the local school tax breaks because of reports of widespread abuse and fraud.

He said the tax break was illegally applied to second homes and some landlords were taking the credit for their homes and for rental properties and rooming houses.

"The new law will create a statewide database that will allow the state and local assessors to spot fraud.
"This budget includes rigorous new oversight of the STAR Program that will root out double dippers, break down the silos that have allowed this type of abuse to occur in the first place, and protect taxpayers," Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi said.
Under the initiative, the state Tax Department will launch the registration program; homeowners would have until April 1, 2014, to comply. Penalties for filing false statements range from $100 to $2,500. An additional $500 "processing fee" would be imposed on transgressors

Is this how the LF assessor is going to take revenge on the 1,500++ people who have signed the YMCA petition?

You will not have to contact your assessor's office.

However, officials are advising taxpayers not to run out to their assessors office in a panic as they say recipients will be contacted by the Department of Taxation if they need to re-register.

"It is our understanding that the taxpayers, instead of coming to their local assessor, the Department of Taxation and Finance will be sending a written notice to property owners by February 2014 by the latest, and the taxpayers will have to re-apply to the Department of Taxation and Finance by April 1, 2014," said Paul Smith, Assessor for the Town of New Hartford and Second Vice President of the NYS Assessor's Association.
