More than 80,000 Nassau County property owners challenged their property tax assessments this year — eight times the usual number — following the first countywide reassessment in nearly a decade, according to Newsday.

Assessment appeals were low in previous years because the Assessment Review Commission had for years granted automatic tax reductions to a large number of filers.

Since the flood of filings, most challenges have been resolved; 13,405 cases remain in the court system. The median assessment reduction was 3 percent.

County Assessor David Moog attributed the remaining backlog in part to the Covid-related closure of courts. The county is facing a $749 million deficit through 2021 because of the pandemic. [Newsday] — Dennis Lynch
