The Nassau County Legislature extended the time for Nassau County landowners to file an assessment grievance. If you are a homeowner and do not agree with the provisional value of your property issued by Nassau in January 2022, you now have until May 2, 2022 to file a “request for correction of assessment” with the Assessment Review Board (ARC). Homeowners who feel the value of their property is too high compared to similar homes in their neighborhood have the right to challenge their assessment, which is the basis for the 2023/2024 School Taxes and 2024 General Taxes.
The Assessment Review Board (ARC) is an independent agency, separate from Nassau County Evaluation Department, which is responsible for reviewing all appraisal correction requests filed in Nassau County each year. These corrections have resulted in substantial savings for the taxpayer.
Owners who wish to challenge their ratings themselves can visit the Nassau County website or attend a free in-person tax forum and learn how to file a grievance. Check the Town of Hempstead website for a full list of tax forums which will be held in March and April in the libraries and parks of the town of Hempstead. Reservations are required and places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. To make a reservation, please email [email protected] or call (516) 414-6598. For more details on filing grievances, visit https://www.nassaucountyny.gov/arc or call the CRA at (516) 571-3214.
