LOWVILLE The Lewis County Real Property Tax Department, 7660 N. State St., will be available from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday to assist homeowners in registering for the School Tax Relief, or STAR, program.
New legislation requires all homeowners age 64 and younger receiving a basic STAR exemption to register with the state Tax Department in order to receive the exemption in 2014 and subsequent years. Homeowners must register by Dec. 31.
About 71 percent of those eligible in Lewis County have registered thus far and this event is an opportunity for those who have not yet registered to do so. Applicants are to bring proof of identity and the Social Security number of all owners of the residence.
All information is kept confidential.
