Information At Your Fingertips

(516) 571-1500

When you call the Department of Assessment's tax information line from a touch-tone telephone, you get instant access to the county's assessment data base 24 hours a day by calling 571-1500.

In order to better serve the taxpayers and property-owners of Nassau County, the Department of Assessment has installed a new voice-response system. This new system will enable fewer people to answer more telephone calls, improving service to the taxpayers and cutting costs at the same time.

As a property owner or taxpayer calling the Department of Assessment, you will encounter fewer busy signals and you will be able to get accurate information about your property's assessment, your property taxes and exemptions.

If you call us to receive a booklet about, or an application for, one of the exemptions offered by Nassau County, you may now record your name and address and have the booklets and forms mailed directly to you.

We know you're busy and this new system will help you get the information you need, whenever you need it.

You Can Get Information in six Categories
