Albany, N.Y. - Governor Cuomo wants to expand a program that cracks down on people who abuse and defraud the state's STAR school tax relief program.
The governor says some folks will lie to get their hands on a portion of the money given out each year. He's calling for anyone caught giving false information to be banned from getting STAR benefits for six years.
The program is for homeowners who make less than $500,000. You can apply for the benefit here.
