What kind of tax exemptions are there and when do I file?

Homeowners may be eligible to receive a Senior Citizens, Veterans, Disability/Limited Income, STAR, Home Improvement and/or Volunteer Firefighter/Ambulance Personnel exemption. Applications are accepted by the Nassau County Department of Assessment year-round. The deadline for filing an exemption with the Nassau County Department of Assessment is January 2nd.

For further information or to obtain an application call 516-571-1500 or visit the Nassau County Assessor's website. New applicants for the STAR Program must register with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, rather than applying with the Nassau County Department of Assessment. New STAR recipients will obtain credit in the form of a check from the New York State Department of Taxation, rather than receiving a property tax exemption.
