Nassau County Legislator C. William Gaylor III would like to inform all owners of a house, condominium or cooperative apartment that they may qualify for hundreds of dollars in property tax savings each year. The Nassau County Department of Assessment is bringing its office operations to the public and will have representatives on hand to answer questions about exemptions and to accept applications on-site from homeowners wishing to file for Veterans, Senior Citizen, Cold War Veterans, Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers, Limited Income Disability, and Home Improvement exemptions. Enhanced STAR applications will also be processed for homeowners already enrolled in the STAR Program prior to January 2, 2015.
Homeowners who will be filing for an exemption can help expedite the processing of their application by bringing two copies of required documentation. Applications and specific documentation requirements are available on the Department of Assessment’s website at: www.nassaucountyny.gov/assessment
