Yes my total County Police Real Estate tax bill is $2,116.00

My East Williston School District Tax bill is $12,036.00


Schools are open 182 days a year about 8 hrs a day. County PD 24/7 365 days per year.


Why the big difference?

The tax base for the entire County is much broader vs just a single district.

As a rough example:
I don't know how many districts there are in Nassau, nor how many homes in the District, but let's assume 25 Districts with 10,000 homes.
So if each home in the district paid your 12G, that would come to $12 mil to that one school district.
And if each District had those same 10,000 homes, and each home in each of those 25 Districts paid the 2,116 you paid, that would come to about $50 mil for the police.


I'm sure someone who is a math wiz and has all the data can do some math & come up with the precise numbers paid.

Additionally, how much do the E. Williston schools get from outside sources such as the State, Fed Govt., Foundations, etc. and how much does the COunty PD get from those same sources? That must be looked at as well to determine what the difference is.

Most schools are open year round.

Saturdays and Sundays with sporting events, all summer with class programs and guidance offices working. Just 4-6 weeks a year on holiday.

P.S. You're getting a BARGAIN. Most people in your district pay over 25K, some over 50K in taxes, you must have a pretty crappy house.

So your home is valued at almost $ 1 million and you are complaining about taxes??

As coach pointed out the county police have many sources where the revenue for the police dept comes from. Property taxes is only a small portion of the revenue collected for the dept, meanwhile its the main portion of revenue for school districts, even more so in wealthy districts like East Williston.

yawn. You have so many (5+) teachers bashing or school tax complaining threads that you have started crowding up this board. Could you possibly condense them? It is becoming very annoying

There are two primary sources of revenue for the police department: property taxes and sales taxes. The bulk of the budget comes from property taxes. There is no on-going federal or state funding of the department's operations. And, no, fines from traffic tickets don't go to the police department -- that's illegal in New York State.
