Preliminary state-owned land lists

Preliminary lists of 2024 taxable state land and taxable state conservation easements are available this week in the Online Assessment Community for impacted municipalities. By April 1, please review all posted documents and follow the instructions to complete the lists. If you have questions, email or call (518) 457-7724.

Deadlines approaching to transmit or enter New IVP participants

In early April, we’ll issue the first round of STAR eligibility reports for municipalities with May 1 tentative roll dates. To ensure that we have complete data for new IVP participants for your municipality, please follow these deadlines:

  • If you're transmitting the data to us for data entry, please do so by Wednesday, March 6. (For details see How to transmit IVP forms to the Tax Department.)
  • If you're entering the IVP data directly into the IVP Tool, complete your entries by Monday, March 11.

Do’s and Don’ts: existing IVP participants

If the property has not sold but owners have changed (new owners, deceased owners, removal of owners), update the enrollment but do not close it.

If a spouse has passed away and the surviving spouse is now the owner, simply update the existing enrollment—even if the spouse wasn’t previously on the deed. Do not create a new enrollment in this scenario.

However, do close the enrollment for any of the following:

  • all of the Enhanced STAR recipients are deceased
  • the property has sold
  • the IVP enrollment was created in error
  • all owners are no longer residents

For complete instructions, see the IVP Tool User Guide, which includes instructions for merges and splits (see page 12).

Again, many thanks!
