Happy New Year! I am a four-digit year, and my last two digits are a perfect square. The sum of my first and third digits is a perfect square. My second digit is a perfect square. All my digits add to a perfect square.

If you subtract my first, second, and third digit from my last digit, you get a perfect square.

If you subtract my third digit from my first digit, you get a perfect square.

Oh, by the way, I'm a perfect square.

What year am I?
