About the STAR Program

The STAR program is the New York State School Tax Relief Program that provides an exemption from school property taxes for owner-occupied, primary residences. This State-financed exemption is authorized by Section 425 of the Real Property Tax Law. The Village of Freeport has no role in administering this program.

School taxes in the Village of Freeport are based on the assessment determined by the Nassau County Department of Assessment. For additional information regarding the STAR program, please contact the Nassau County Department of Assessment at 516-571-1500.
