How to get your STAR credit faster if you’re a homeowner in New York?

  • Staff Report 

New York residents receiving the STAR credit can now opt for direct deposit to receive their payments faster. The STAR Credit Direct Deposit program, tested last year in Suffolk and Nassau counties, is now available statewide.


Homeowners enrolled in this voluntary program will see their credits deposited directly into their bank accounts, speeding up the process.

To enroll, you need your bank’s nine-digit routing number and account number, which can be found on a check, in your banking app, or by contacting your bank. Log into your Individual Online Services account on the Tax Department’s website, navigate to the Homeowner Benefit Portal, and follow the instructions to enroll. Once enrolled, you will continue to receive your STAR credit by direct deposit each year.
