Hear 'n Aid was a one-off project of the heavy metal/hard rock scene of the 1980s to raise money for famine relief in Africa. According to Ronnie James Dio's. Life Cycles of Stars A star's life cycle is determined by its mass. The larger its mass, the shorter its life cycle. A star's mass is determined by the amount of matter that is available in its nebula, the giant cloud of gas and dust from which it was born.
Realtors and attorneys, as your clients purchase new homes, we encourage you to provide them with this printable one-page handout: Register for the School Tax Relief (STAR) credit.
If you’ve recently bought your home or you’ve never applied for the STAR benefit on your current home, you may be able to save hundreds of dollars each year. You only need to register for the STAR credit once, and you’ll continue to receive the annual benefit as long as you’re eligible. See the STAR program to learn more.
Unless there’s been a change in ownership, please do not register again. We’ll review your information every year and automatically send you a STAR credit check if you’re eligible.
Use the STAR Check Delivery Schedule for updated information on when we will begin to issue checks in your area.
If you switch to the STAR credit from the STAR exemption, once your registration takes effect, you’ll receive a check for the STAR credit rather than a reduction on your school tax bill (the STAR exemption).
If you are voluntarily switching to the STAR credit from the STAR exemption:
If you received a letter that you must update your registration (Form RP-425-RDM):
If you pay school taxes through a mortgage escrow account, you may wish to contact the mortgage lender or its agent to advise them that you have switched to the STAR credit from the STAR exemption.
Before you start, have the following information at hand for reference. If you don’t have the necessary information, you won’t be able to save the registration to complete at a later time.
Note: You will be prompted to provide a Property key, but it is not required to complete the registration.
If you were not required to file a 2019 income tax return, you will need the following additional information for all property owners:
If you are eligible, we will send your STAR credit check before your school tax bill is due. To see if you’ll begin receiving the STAR credit this year or if the registration will not take effect until next year, see Deadline to switch to the STAR credit from the STAR exemption.
You don’t need to register again in future years unless there has been a change in ownership of your home. When you register for the STAR credit, we will automatically review your application to determine whether you’re eligible for the Basic or Enhanced STAR credit. As long as you’re eligible, we will send you a check for the amount of your benefit.
If we need additional information to process your registration, or if our records indicate that you are not eligible for the credit, we will send you a letter. The letter will explain how to provide the requested information and how to respond if you disagree.
The Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS) is an air traffic control automation system manufactured by Raytheon and is currently being used in many TRACONs around the United States by the FAA. STARS replaced the Automated Radar Terminal System (ARTS) at FAA air traffic control facilities across the US, as well as the previous automation systems employed by the DoD.
The STARS system receives and processes target reports, weather, and other non-target messages from both terminal and en route digital sensors. Additionally, it automatically tracks primary and secondary surveillance targets and provides aircraft position information to the enhanced traffic management system (ETMS). Finally, it also detects unsafe proximities between tracked aircraft pairs and provides a warning if tracked aircraft are detected at a dangerously low altitude. Additional features include converging runway display aid (CRDA) which displays 'ghost' targets as an aid to controllers attempting to tightly space aircraft to converging/crossing runways in the terminal environment.
The system is currently being used at all TRACON sites throughout the US and USAF RAPCON, USN RATCF and USA ARAC terminal facilities.
STARS was installed as part of the FAA's TAMR project to replace the aging/obsolete ARTS hardware and software at TRACONS. TAMR Segment 3 Phase 1 replaced the 11 largest TRACONS CARTS with STARS. The smaller ARTS IIA sites transitioned to the STARS ELITE (Enhanced Local Integrated Tower Equipment) version of software and hardware, which is similar to TAMR, but with minimum redundancy. The FAA plans to completed this process in 2019.
