Hilton Central School District homeowners' property tax information

Hilton Central School District homeowners may be eligible for partial property tax exemptions under several state programs including these listed below. The STAR program provides partial tax exemptions from school property taxes for owners of residential property provided the property is an owner-occupied primary residence.  The 'Basic' STAR exemption applies to homeowners regardless of age or income.  Homeowners do not need to reapply each year unless their primary residence changes.  The 'Enhanced' STAR exemption applies to senior citizens age 65 and older with a household adjusted gross income not above $64,200.  IRA income can be deducted in determining income.  Applicants must reapply each year to keep the enhanced exemption in effect unless they have enrolled in the NYS Automatic Renewal Program.  Senior citizen [age 65 and up] and disabled residents of the Hilton CSD may also be eligible for the 'Aged Exemption' which has a sliding scale determined by the Hilton Board of Education.  The New York State School Tax Relief Program (STAR) provides homeowners with two types of partial exemptions from school property taxes. If you earn less than $500,000 and own and live in your home, you're probably eligible for the STAR exemptions.
