New York State is now requiring all Homeowners that have already registered in the STAR Real Estate Tax Rebate Program to re-register on their Primary Residence. If you earn less than $500,000, you are eligible for the BASIC STAR Rebate. If you do not register before December 31, 2013 you may lose your tax reduction benefits.
If you are not familiar with the new registration procedure, don’t worry, the Bronx Tax Man will help you get re-registered fast. Give them 20 minutes and they will make sure you continue to receive your real estate tax rebate, completely FREE OF CHARGE. This offer is available until October 1st.
To schedule an appointment, call the Bronx Tax Man at (718) 829-1040 or to schedule an appointment in person, stop by the office at 3707 East Tremont Ave., Bronx NY 10465.
Senior Citizens with enhanced STAR are not subject to the new registration process and must continue to apply annually like they have in the past.

MenusNY is a division of Nouri Data Systems, a web development company operating right here in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx, New York.
Being a small business ourselves, we understand the importance of getting communities to realize the benefits of shopping and doing business locally.
As a member of the Board of Directors for the Throggs Neck Merchant Association and a member of the Bronx Chamber of Commerce, we have frequently debated the issue of “What is the best way to get consumers in a community to shop locally?” Although there are many factors to consider when trying to get consumers to shop locally, all of which are outside the scope of this text, there is one thing that people will always purchase locally. Take-Out Food.
Thus, the creation of MenusNY.
With MenusNY, we can provide a service for the community, restaurants, and any local business that wants to get its information out to the local community.
This effort will provide:
- Local residents with a menu from a local restaurant;
- The restaurant with a full color menu for a fraction of the actual printing cost (menus are sometimes too cost prohibitive for some restaurants to print);
- Local businesses with the opportunity to advertise to local residents.
We believe this is a first step in getting a community to shop locally.
In most communities, most local residents will never know of the existence of a majority of businesses doing business within one mile of their homes. This is a very unfortunate situation for the businesses that are going unnoticed and the community member that thinks it needs to travel outside the community for a particular purchase or service. With MenusNY we are trying to change that, and with your help, we think we can.
If you are a small business or you know a business that can benefit from our services, please feel free to contact us at 347 838-5708, send an email to email@example.com or visit our co-op page at http://www.menusny.com/co-op.
To search for a favorite restaurant, visit www.menusny.com
If you own a restaurant and want to submit your menu to MenusNY, please send a PDF version of the menu to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are currently looking for sales persons to help with our expansion process. All interested parties should send an email with their resume to email@example.com
The menu submission service is free of charge to restaurants.

The abundant commercial and entertainment offerings of the Throggs Neck community, including some of the region’s best restaurants, amusements, products, and services, will be highlighted along East Tremont Avenue.
The Throggs Neck Merchants Association is producing a unique event, which has grown out of the successful Sidewalk Sales of the past five years. The 2013 version will feature a free top-shelf musical extravaganza, a generous array of activities, and an extraordinary assortment of services. This is the top “can’t miss” event of the season.
The length of East Tremont Avenue’s prime commercial district, from Dudley to Harding, will be lined with opportunities to sample mouth-watering selections from some of the most sought-after eateries in the area. While strolling from one delicious site to another, shopping enthusiasts can indulge in the numerous offerings of the area’s prime retailers, as well as browse a flea market.
You’ll be fascinated by offerings from the Bronx Zoo and the Botanical Garden.
You can be productive while having a great time, for there will be numerous opportunities to make the afternoon as useful as it will be pleasurable. Among them, The NYPD will provide child and cell phone ID protection. No-cost digital mammography services and clinical breast exams will be available with the Mobile Care Clinic.Walk-ins are welcome for the Mobile Care Clinic, but if you would like to make an appointment, call 877-628-9090. Exercise those muscles that slept all winter on a rock-climbing wall along the way. You can even adopt a dog at the event!
Be sure to bring the kids. Face painting, a van from the Bronx Children’s Museum, free hot dogs, a castle bounce, carnival games, and even a visit from McGruff the crime-fighting dog and other amusements will keep them as happy as you will be.
For many, the highlight of the day will be an incredible show featuring the music of the Beatles, Buddy Holly, The Coasters, Dion and The Belmonts, The Kinks, Herman’s Hermits, Ray Charles and more, performed by the “Electronic Mosholu Crash” courtesy of the Bronx Arts Ensemble.

With the backlog of tax return filing due to late changing tax laws, want to ensure your refund gets to you in the shortest amount of time? More importantly, how can you avoid receiving a letter from the IRS? Here are some of the most common tax filing mistakes:
Forgetting a W-2 or 1099: The IRS does an effective job in comparing W-2s and 1099s they receive from organizations to the amounts you claim on your tax return. If they do not match, rest assured you will receive a notice in the mail asking for clarification.
Duplicate dependent reporting: If more than one tax return claims the same person as a dependent, the second return will be rejected. The IRS does not try to determine which tax return is correct. They leave that up to you.
Forgetting a name change: If you fail to change your name with Social Security after marriage and you file a tax return with your “new” last name, be prepared for either a rejected tax return or an adjusted tax return.
Other missing information: When preparing your tax return, often the return is held up because key information is missing. These missing items range from property tax and mortgage interest statements, to 1099s and W-2s.
Signing the e-file authorization form: Your tax return cannot be e-filed without proper authorization. After reviewing your return, a properly signed Form 8879 must be received.
