Curran Brings Back In-Person Property Tax Exemption Workshops Helping Homeowners Reduce Tax Bills

One-on-one appointments will be available August 25th - October 29th at libraries and community meeting halls countywide

(Mineola, NY) - As part of her continued efforts to help homeowners reduce their property tax burden, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran is bringing back in-person Property Tax Exemption Workshops, as the County experiences the highest vaccination rate in New York state. To attend a workshop and ensure the health and safety of employees and residents, homeowners are asked to make an appointment. Residents will be able to meet with Department of Assessment exemption specialists one-on-one to address individual questions and assist in filing for Veterans, Senior Citizen, Cold War Veterans, Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers, Limited Income Disability, or Physical Disability exemptions. The series of workshops will run August 25th through October 29th at libraries and community meeting halls throughout the county.

“With the highest vaccination rate in the state, I am proud to bring these important workshops back to communities across our county. And I thank our generous partners at the libraries, VFW posts, villages and religious centers for hosting,” said County Executive Laura Curran. “The pandemic hit our homeowners hard. I strongly encourage residents to take advantage of the many property tax exemptions that Nassau County offers. I will continue to provide property tax relief wherever and whenever possible.”

To make an appointment, homeowners are encouraged to visit the Department of Assessment’s website homepage at www.nassaucountyny.gov/Assessment or proceed directly to the scheduling app by clicking here. Homeowners who do not have access to a computer or the internet may contact the Department of Assessment’s customer service line at (516) 571-1500 to make an appointment. Those who are unable to book an appointment may visit the Department of Assessment’s office located at 240 Old Country Road in Mineola from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, for further assistance.

As part of New York State’s Enhanced STAR Income Verification Program, Enhanced STAR recipients are no longer required to file a renewal application with the Department of Assessment. The state 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 credit/check program by telephone at (518) 457-2036 or on-line at https://www8.tax.ny.gov/STRP/strpStart.
