Officials: STAR checks will be on time this year, thousands are already in the mail

Officials with the state Department of Tax and Finance say STAR checks will be coming any day now.

While newsrooms around the region have been getting plenty of questions about them, or if they would be delayed due to the pandemic – an answer was received this week.

News10NBC reports that the checks are being mailed out and are not experiencing any delays.

Altogether 313,000 checks have been sent out to property owners who are eligible under the program. There is also an online portal for residents and taxpayers to check their status.
