As the deadline for a special tax break approaches, the state is reminding all eligible homeowners to register.
The New York State Tax Department says households with incomes of less than $500,000 dollars a year can qualify for Basic STAR, earning an average savings of $700 in property taxes.
More than two million people have already registered.
To register for the program, homeowners can log on to tax.ny.gov or call 518-457-2036.
The deadline is December 31.
