Addabbo and Pheffer Amato co-host Department of Finance enrollment event in the Rockaways

On Friday, February 15, State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. and Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato will be bringing members of the NYC Department of Finance to help residents with their Notice of Property Value statement, as well as enrolling in property tax exemption programs.

This event will run from 12 to 2 p.m. on Friday, February 15, at the Knights of Columbus, located at 333 Beach 90th Street, Rockaway Beach.

Participants in the event will receive one-on-one assistance with a member from the Department of Finance to help them understand their NOPV, ask about their market and assessed values, and change their property’s description.

If you wish to receive assistance, please bring your Notice of Property Value.

“Property values are seemingly always changing and are a very important piece of information for any homeowner,” Addabbo said. “That’s why it is vital that residents are up to date on their property values and know what they owe. We will also be able to help residents who meet certain criteria to apply for property tax exemptions. I would like to thank Assemblywoman Pheffer Amato for helping to bring this event to the Rockaways, and the Department of Finances for assisting our constituents.”

There will also be experts from the Department of Finance to help residents sign up for property tax exemptions. Property tax exemptions are available to seniors (65+), veterans, people with disabilities, and clergy members.

In order to apply for these exemptions, please bring photo ID, tax returns or proof of income for 2017 or 2018 for all owners, DD214 or discharge papers (for veterans), and trust documents (if applicable).
