(Mineola, NY) - As part of her continued efforts to help homeowners reduce their property tax burden, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran, in partnership with the county legislature, will be hosting a series of Property Tax Exemptions Workshops from July through November at libraries and community meeting halls throughout the county.
Department of Assessment staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide individual assistance to any homeowner who would like to file for his or her Veterans, Senior Citizen, Cold War Veterans, Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers, Limited Income Disability, or Home Improvement exemption on-site.
“I am pleased to bring Department of Assessment office operations to communities in every legislative district,” stated County Executive Curran. “I encourage homeowners, who have not already done so, to take advantage of the many property tax exemptions that Nassau County offers. Homeowners who meet the State’s income and ownership requirements could find themselves saving hundreds of dollars off their property tax bill each year.”
As part of New York State’s Mandatory Enhanced STAR Income Verification Program (IVP) that was implemented last year, Enhanced STAR recipients are no longer required to file a renewal application with Department of Assessment. NYS will verify STAR income eligibility and contact applicants, if additional information is needed.
First-time/new homeowner Basic and Enhanced STAR applicants must register with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance for the Personal Income Tax Credit/Check Program by telephone at (518) 457-2036 or on-line at https://www8.tax.ny.gov/STRP/strpStart.
All property tax exemptions workshops, except for the East Meadow location, will be offered from 1 – 2:30 p.m. The August 26 workshop at the East Meadow United Methodist Church will be held from 2 – 3:30 p.m.
