Homeowner complaints push Nassau to adjust property reassessments

December 17, 2018 12:35PM

Nassau County officials will adjust the values on more than 40,000 of the municipality’s 386,000 residential properties after hearing from thousands of homeowners about errors in their property tax assessments, Newsday reported. Homeowners were notified about the new values 60 days before they were to be included in the tentative assessment roll issued Jan. 2 and the new values will first be used in school tax bills slated for October 2020. County assessor David Moog said in a statement that it is normal to change reassessments. “Some of the changes are on individual parcels where other adjustments were made that affected blocks, or groups of properties,” Moog said. Assessment staff met with more than 4,000 taxpayers and got more than 14,000 calls and emails. The Nassau legislature’s Office of Budget Review also said that 75,000 homeowners in the county can expect to see their property taxes increase by more than 25 percent. [Newsday]
