As part of his ongoing efforts to make Nassau County government more accessible to its residents, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced that the Department of Assessment will be extending its hours of operations effective Thursday, October 2nd through Thursday, December 18th.
“The new schedule was created as an extension of the dozens of successful and well-attended Property Tax Exemptions Workshops that I sponsor each year in communities throughout the County from July through November,” stated County Executive Mangano. “With the help of Acting County Assessor Jim Davis and his talented exemptions processing staff, homeowners will find it even easier to file their exemption applications at times more suited to their busy schedules.”
Acting Assessor Davis noted that the extended hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the days indicated on the calendar listed below. In addition, four Saturdays have been added to the calendar with office hours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
* Saturday, 11/8
* Saturday, 12/6
* Saturday, 10/11
* Saturday, 12/13
“Nassau County offers a number of property tax exemptions including Basic and Enhanced STAR, Veterans, Senior Citizen, Cold War Veterans, Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers, Limited Income Disability, and Home Improvement,” Acting Assessor Davis continued. “I urge all homeowners to take advantage of these new hours and to file for their property tax exemptions.”
To obtain a copy of an application or for further information on the many property exemptions offered by Nassau County, County Executive Mangano and Acting Assessor Davis encourage homeowners to contact the Department of Assessment at (516) 571-1500 or visit the department website at www.mynassauproperty.com.
