Additional notes:

If you believe your bank or mortgage company escrows for your taxes (your monthly mortgage amount includes a tax escrow payment) and you receive a tax bill, please forward your bill to the bank or company holding your mortgage.

Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve you of your responsibility for payment. It also will not constitute cause for cancellation of any penalty if the bill becomes delinquent.  (New York State Real Property Tax Law 922)  If you do not receive a tax bill, please contact the Tuxedo UFSD School Tax collector at 845-351-2296 x2022 and a copy can be mailed or emailed to you.

STAR Program Information

The School Tax Relief (STAR) program offers property tax relief to eligible New York State homeowners.

If you are eligible and enrolled in the STAR program, you’ll receive your benefit each year in one of two ways:

  1. STAR credit check. If you are registered for the STAR credit, the Tax Department will send you a STAR check in the mail each year. You can use the check to pay your school taxes. You can receive the STAR credit if you own your home and it's your primary residence and the combined income of the owners and the owners’ spouses is $500,000 or less.

  2. STAR exemption: a reduction on your school tax bill. If you’ve been receiving the STAR exemption since 2015, you can continue to receive it for the same primary residence. As long as you remain eligible, you’ll see a reduction on your school tax bill for the amount of your STAR exemption. Note: The STAR exemption is no longer available to new homeowners.

The STAR program is not administered by the school district. For more information, call the NYS Tax Department at (518) 457-2047 or visit https://www.tax.ny.gov/star/default.htm
