- Long Islanders: Have you filed a tax grievance?
- What this extension can do for new homeowners in Nassau County
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran recently announced an extension to the property assessment grievance deadline from March 1st to April 30th, 2021. This 60-day grace period was granted in an effort to assist Long Island residents with the financial toll of the pandemic and the consequent instability within the housing market.
What does this mean for Nassau County homeowners?
Appealing your property tax bill can not only help reduce the taxes you pay on your property but also help reduce mortgage rates. Combined with other tax credits, such as those for first-time home buyers, Nassau County residents can see some major savings by filing a grievance. Taxpayers are also permitted to file a tax grievance as many times as they want, though it often requires extensive work and research.
At the end of the day, it’s worth the effort: who wouldn’t want to pay less in property taxes?
How can the extended deadline benefit new Nassau County homeowners?
Nassau County is ranked #1 in the highest property taxes in the US, according to The Tax Foundation. New homeowners can attest to that. The county’s 10-year property assessment negligence has taken its toll on new Nassau residents as Curran’s five-year solution pans out. Newsday recently reported that over 1,000 new Nassau County residents were hit with crippling tax bills this year as the county compensates for a decade worth of unaccounted tax monies on undervalued homes.
The solution: file for a grievance before April 30th.
Filing a property tax grievance in Nassau County can be done through AROW, the Assessment Review on the Web, though the process can be easily facilitated by tax experts.
