Why All Nassau County Homeowners Should File a Tax Grievance

Why All Nassau County Homeowners Should File a Tax Grievance

 |  November 1, 2017

It’s time for some straight talk about your property taxes. So, here it is: If you don’t file a grievance on your property, its assessed value will go up and your taxes may go up as well. It’s that simple.

Don’t pay more than you should

Thousands of Nassau County homeowners are already grieving their taxes and saving money, year after year. If you’re not one of them, there’s a good chance the tax burden is being shifted over to you. In other words, while your neighbor’s taxes are being reduced, yours are likely increasing to make up the difference. So, that means you could be paying for their refunds.

It’s time to level the playing field and join the masses so you don’t continue paying for more than your fair share. Some homeowners are seeing savings as high as 35 percent – and if you have never grieved your taxes or haven’t grieved in several years, you are likely due for a substantial reduction.

What exactly is a tax grievance?

A tax grievance is the exercise of your right as homeowner to challenge your property’s assessed value to ensure you’re not paying more than you should. And it’s a lot easier to apply for a tax grievance than you may think! If you work with professionals, all you need to do is submit a quick application (while you’re waiting in line for your morning coffee, during your lunch break, in-between cooking dinner), and a professional service will take it from there and work hard to get you the savings you deserve (without any fees or upfront costs).

Why should you apply?

Antiquated state laws are pushing homeowners to grieve their taxes annually until all Nassau county homes can be reassessed. Until then, tax experts agree there is strength in numbers, and they encourage all homeowners to join the movement to lower taxes across the board until the system can be fixed.

When should you apply?

If you live in Nassau County, the Assessment Review Committee will be accepting applications between January 2nd and March 1st of 2018. But you don’t have to wait. Professional services, like us here at Long Island Tax Angels, are ready to partner with you now to get the ball rolling. Simply fill out your application and let our experienced tax team do the rest. They will begin working on it now, so they can submit it early in the application period.

When will I see my savings?

If you win a grievance, your tax reduction will become effective at the beginning of the next property tax year (which runs between December 1st and November 30th.) For example, if you submit your application by the March 1st, 2018 deadline, you will see your savings in the 2019-2020 tax year. You will be notified about your results prior to receiving your December tax bill.
