Revised Nassau property values posted as GOP pushes later grievance deadline

January 07, 2019 04:50PM

The administration of Nassau County Executive Laura Curran published online new assessment values for the county’s more than 424,000 residential and commercial properties, Newsday reported. The move occurred as Republican legislators moved to delay the deadline for filing grievances to April 30. Notices about the reassessed values should reach every property owner by the end of January. Officials said the new values will help create a better tax roll that Nassau can use in court to defend itself against tax challenges. The county has already borrowed hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for successful tax challenges. Republican legislators blasted the county’s Democratic leadership, saying that late and incorrect notices to homewners, confusion on how officials reached the new values and generally poor communication had angered many property owners. Nassau Republicans hope their proposed legislation will give property owners more time to dispute assessment values. [Newsday]
