More than 2.1 million of the 2.7 million homeowners enrolled for a STAR property-tax exemption have re-registered for the program, according to the state Department of Taxation and Finance.
As part of a plan to cut down on fraud in the program, eligible New York homeowners are required to re-enroll in the basic STAR program by the end of the year. So far, about 78 percent have, according to the latest tax department figures.
