To be eligible to receive a check for the 2020 STAR credit, your property must be the primary residence of one of the owners.
If you received this letter (Form RP-5310-DLDR), you registered for the STAR credit on the property described in your letter, but you entered a different primary residence on your 2019 New York State income tax return. Therefore, you are not eligible for the STAR credit on this property.
For purposes of the STAR credit, primary residence is generally defined as a home where you reside for more than half of the year.
What to do next
You do not need to do anything unless you disagree. If you disagree, within 30 days send us:
- a copy of this letter,
- a brief letter of explanation, and
- a copy of at least two documents to confirm that the property is your primary residence.
Examples of residency documentation include:
- a statement from the Board of Elections confirming your residence for voting purposes
- a driver license or government-issued ID, and
- a vehicle registration.
