Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano today announced the creation of an online user friendly video, accessible on the Assessment Review Commission (ARC) website at http://www.nassaucountyny.gov/arc, to guide homeowners through the property tax assessment appeal process. The five-minute instructional video, “How to Appeal Your Assessment,” walks filers (via screen shots) through the appeal process and shows how to effortlessly navigate the ARC website to access comparable sales in the neighborhood as well as detailed information/inventory for the subject home.
“Homeowners should carefully review their property assessment and if they disagree, our new video explains the grievance process,” stated County Executive Mangano. “I am happy to make this grievance process video available to homeowners via our website as it will assist homeowners who wish to challenge the accuracy of their homes assessed value.”
Homeowners who believe that their assessed value for the 2017-18 school and general property tax year is too high, or property’s classification or exemption status is incorrect, are encouraged to file an “Application for Correction of Assessment” with ARC before the close of the grievance filing period on March 1, 2016. While the application is available in paper form, the convenience of filing online using ARC’s “Assessment Review on the Web” (AROW) link will provide filers with an immediate confirmation that their assessment appeal has been received.
ARC applications can be obtained online at http://www.nassaucountyny.gov/arc. For individuals who do not have internet access, the application can be obtained in person at ARC located at 240 Old Country Road in Mineola, or by contacting ARC at (516) 571-3214. ARC hours of operation are from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
Individual notices of tentative assessed value, which were recently mailed by Department of Assessment, are available for viewing to homeowners on the Department of Assessment website http://www.mynassauproperty.com. While the notices show the assigned tentative assessed value for each property for the 2017-18 school and general tax years, it does not reflect the amount of property taxes that will be imposed by a school district or local taxing authority.
There is no fee to file an “Application for Correction of Assessment” with Nassau County.
