What are the property taxes in NY state ? I see a monthly tax stated sometimes but I also see a much higher amount quoted with STAR . What is STAR?

Asked by unsafesax, Shirley, NY Sun Sep 9, 2012

For example I see a property tax per month quoted as lets say $200. Then I see a tax quote of $6500 with STAR The second figure if it's per year would be about $640 per month which is about 3 times as much. I'm confused.

Property taxes do vary based on exact location, ugrades, size, schools, etc. For STAR information see link below.

The property taxes in NYS vary by township, size of home, property size, etc. When a home is listed by a Realtor, the taxes should not reflect what they are with exemptions. You can always contact the tax assessors office for the exact taxes and exemptions.

The realtor should always quote the real estate tax as the amount it would be without STAR. STAR is an owner occupied discount on real estate tax.
Hire a buyer realtor. The realtor will check what the real estate tax is on a particular home. Each home in Shirley has a different real estate tax.

in Shirley Mastic and Mastic Beach Areas the taxes are on the low side $5500 to 8 or even 9,000 for some of the larger bigger homes. Most of the taxes are about 7 to $8,000 from what I've seen. so don't believe 200 a month its more like 3 X that amount. Hope this answers your question? Let me know if you want to see any homes ?
