CHALLENGING YOUR NASSAU COUNTY PROPERTY ASSESSMENT

Charles J. Fuschillo Jr.

January 06, 2010

Each year, Nassau County residents have the right to file a grievance if they believe their property has been over-assessed by the Nassau County Department of Assessment.

Individuals who wish to challenge their assessment must file an application with the County’s Assessment Review Commission (ARC) before March 1, 2010. ARC is an independent administrative tribunal, separate from the Nassau County Department of Assessment,  which reviews taxpayer requests for assessment reductions. ARC reduces assessments that it finds overvalued, corrects errors in tax class designation and reviews denials of exemptions. ARC cannot increase assessments.

Nassau County does not charge a fee for filing a grievance. Individuals are allowed to represent themselves or hire an attorney to represent them if they so choose.
