If you live in and are the owner of a home, condominium or cooperative apartment, you may qualify for hundreds of dollars in property tax savings each year.
“I urge all home owners to take advantage of these worthwhile property tax savings workshops,” stated Legislator Ford. To help you file for or learn more about property tax exemptions you may be eligible for, Legislator Ford, in conjunction with County Executive Ed Mangano, has arranged to bring the Department of Assessment Office operations to the Oceanside Public Library on Wednesday, September 7th from 1 to 3 PM and the Long Beach Public Library on Tuesday, September 27th from 1 to 3 PM.
Equipped with specially configured computers linked to the county’s database, Department of Assessment staff will process property tax exemption applications (Veterans, Senior Citizen, Cold War Veterans, Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers, Limited Income Disability, and Home Improvement) on-site. In addition, Nassau County also offers two types of School Tax Relief (STAR) property tax exemptions: Basic STAR (for residents who own and live in their own home, condominium or cooperative apartment with an annual household income of $500,000 or less) and Enhanced STAR (for senior citizens aged 65 years or older with annual incomes of $79,050 or less).
Homeowners who will be filing for an exemption can help expedite the processing of their application by bringing copies of any documentation that is required for the property tax exemption he or she is applying. Applications and specific documentation requirements are available on the Department of Assessment website: www.mynassauproperty.com
