More than 240 residents flooded the parking lot and streets around the Farmingdale Library on the afternoon of Monday, Sept. 14 to attend a presentation and forum from the Nassau County Department of Assessment. The well-attended meeting allowed homeowners to have their exemption applications processed in person and to learn more about the department and if they qualify to save money in property taxes.
One of the key advantages of holding one-on-one meetings with one of the department’s valuation specialists at the library is that once an inaccuracy or incorrect entry is discovered with the recorded property information on-file, an adjustment can be made quickly. A homeowner will no longer have to wait months to file an assessment challenge with the Assessment Review Commission (ARC) from January-March and again wait months for a simple correction to be made.
