Are you shocked by your latest tax bill?
Nassau County Executive Mangano said he had a plan to fix Nassau’s assessment system, but his changes only made the system worse and resulted in higher taxes for you.
Since taking office, Mangano has:
- Penalized homeowners who didn’t challenge their assessment by forcing them to pay huge tax increases to offset those who won unsubstantiated reductions. It’s so bad, that even homeowners that were awarded a fair reduction suffered large tax hikes.
- Froze assessments, in a depressed housing market, for a four-year period when annual valuations could have reduced major tax hikes.
- Ignored commercial tax challenges, adding over $200 million to Nassau’s staggering debt!
- Failed to fairly assess properties, and by arbitrarily granting unfair or disproportionately high reductions, Mangano made Nassau’s assessment system as broken as it’s ever been.
If you have questions about your assessment, or wish to file an appeal, please call the County Assessor at 516-571-1500. If you need any further assistance, please contact Legislator Wink’s office at 516-571-6211 or attend one of our free workshops.
Legislator Wink will hold free workshops on how to file a grievance of your assessment with the Assessment Review Commission.
