It has come to my attention that certain companies are sending out mailings to homeowners offering to file STAR Exemption forms on homeowners’ behalf for a fee – as high as 100% of the exemption obtained.
Please be aware homeowners may file applications for STAR Exemptions (as well as other property tax exemptions) with the Nassau County Assessor’s Office for free. You do not need to pay a fee or have a company complete the forms for you.
Please visit the County Assessor’s website at www.nassaucountyny.gov/agencies/Assessor/index.html to view brochures and print application forms for exemptions. Applications for the STAR Exemption are due on or by Jan. 4, 2010.
Please share this information with your friends and family.
