Property Tax Grievance Nassau County NY
Homeowners in Nassau County have one chance a year to lower their exorbitant property taxes and this year the tax grievance filing deadline is March 2, 2015.
According to a study by Zillow, Nassau County pay’s the nation’s fourth-highest property taxes in the nation. Nassau County is one of only 5 counties in the state that are categorized as a “Special Assessment Unit” as defined by New York State. This affords Nassau County certain freedoms that other municipalities do not enjoy, primarily the ability to deal with most tax grievances at their Assessment Review Committee level, better known as ARC.
ARC’s responsibility is to review the valuation set by the Nassau County Department of Assessment and to reduce the assessment of the valuation is excessive. These corrections have resulted in substantial savings to Nassau County Residents, at least the homeowner’s that file a grievance. And therein lies the problem, if you are a Nassau County homeowner who does not file a property tax grievance each and every year, you are subsidizing the residents that do. But let’s look at this even further, tax rates throughout the county are rising faster than global warming. So by not filing a property tax grievance, you are getting double hit!
