Get the forms from your local Town Hall and follow the instructions carefully. See if you can talk to an assessor and ask for some input; some are very helpful. Be prepared for a possible initial denial of your application and figure on filing an appeal if/after they turn you down.

No, no one will come to your house as a result of a filed grievance.

ChrisK - $3000 sounds high for the VET exemption . I bought in 2007 and the VET exemption is still on my taxes from previous owner , but I didn't think it was that much of a savings ... Could it be that high ? Also , I think the taxes that my bank takes out factors that in and that money goes into escrow ... pretty sure .. Any one have anymore info on this type of scenario ?

KB - When would the deadline be to grieve ? Im in Town of Hempstead .

Thanks

Unlike in Suffolk County where each of the 10 Towns separately assess property within each Town, in Nassau County the County assesses the property in the 2 Cities and 3 Towns.

Recently, the Nassau County Assessors Office was changed from an elected position to an appointed position.

The $3,000 amount was likely several factors. May not have just been a vet, but perhaps a disabled vet, a senior who qualified for expanded star or other exemptions.

As far as the Deadline goes, the deadline for this years taxes have passed, and I believe next year as well. Although the rolls for next year are not final until 4/1 I believe you would have already have had the process started to grieve those taxes. One thing to keep in mind is the taxes are based off of the value of 2 years earlier. For example the 08-09 school & 09 county & town taxes are based off the value of Jan 2nd 2007. the 09-10 school taxes and 2010 county & town taxes are based off the vale on Jan 2nd 2008 and so on.

If you would like to grieve your latest assessment, you would contact the county not the town since your living in Nassau. The deadline I believe is March 2nd. This would be for the 2010/2011 school taxes and the 2011 county & town taxes. Take a look at what your home was recently assessed at (you should have received something in the mail and if not you can look it up on the mynassaucountyproperty.com website), look up the one for 2011 (as of 1/2/09) and decide if it is worth a challenge. You can also look up what the various exemptions were for your property on that site.
