Immediate Release - Contact: David Chauvin - February 6, 2006 (516) 869-7794
Manhasset, NY – North Hempstead Receiver of Taxes Rocco Iannarelli reminded North Hempstead residents today that the March 1st deadline to challenge your assessment is fast approaching. As a result of the Nassau County Property reassessment it is important that residents be aware of their right under the law to file a formal legal grievance challenging the amount of your new property assessment.
“It’s important that residents know they have the right to challenge their assessment,” said Mr. Iannarelli. “Residents can examine the tentative assessment roll that was filed on January 2, 2006 in the Nassau County Department of Assessment, 240 Old Country Road in Mineola. If, after looking at the roll you disagree with the amount of your new assessment, you should initiate the grievance process.”
The period during which residents may file a grievance began on January 2, 2006 and ends on March 1, 2006. Grievance applications, as well as a publication containing procedures for contesting your assessment are available at the Nassau County Department of Assessment, 240 Old Country Road, 4th Floor, Mineola. The department phone number is 571-2490 and its web address is www.nassaucountyny.gov/arc.
Residents looking for assistance in locating attorneys who specialize in assessment challenges may call the Nassau County Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Information Service at 747-4832, Monday through Friday, between 10am-12pm and 2pm- 4pm. Most companies do not charge a fee unless they are successful in obtaining a reduction in your assessment.
