Tax Exemption Workshop To Be Held

Hannon and Mangano to sponsor

property tax exemption program

If you live in and are the owner of a home, condominium or cooperative apartment (co-op), you may qualify for hundreds of dollars in property tax savings each year.

“I’m partnering with Nassau County Executive Mangano to bring the Department of Assessment office operations to the Uniondale Public Library (400 Uniondale Ave., Uniondale) on Friday, Aug. 8, from 1 to 3 p.m.,” said Senator Kemp Hannon.

Equipped with specially configured computers linked to the county’s database, the department of assessment will be able to process property tax exemption applications for the following:

• Veterans Property Tax Exemption

• Senior Citizens Property Tax Exemption

• Cold War Veterans Property Tax Exemption

• Volunteer Firefighters & Ambulance Workers Property Tax Exemption

• Limited Income Disability Property Tax Exemption

• Home Improvement Tax Exemption

In addition, Nassau County home, condominium and cooperative owners are eligible for two types of STAR (School Tax Relief) exemptions—Basic STAR (for residents who own and live in their home, condo or co-op with an annual household income of $500,000 or less) and Enhanced STAR (for senior citizens aged 65 years and older with annual incomes of $83,300 or less).

If you’re eligible, you must bring copies of all the necessary documentation to the workshop and you can file for your tax exemption on the spot! Applications and specific documentation requirements are available on the Department of Assessment website at www.mynassauproperty.com

If you have any specific questions about any of these programs, please call Senator Hannon’s Community Office at 516-739-1700 or the Nassau County Department of Assessment at 516-571-1500.

School board shows off improvements at Stratford

This month’s Garden City Board of Education meeting saw a boost in attendance, and not just from district residents. This was the first board meeting to be held at Stratford School, so teachers and students there stopped by to show off the best it has to offer.

Leading the pack was school principal Eileen Vota, who gave the board a tour of the school before the meeting got underway. Along the way, highlights of the capital improvement project were pointed out, all a result of the 2009 School Investment Bond and Energy Performance Contract.

The Senior Advisory Committee is the Senior group that helps plan trips, parties, and programs for all seniors in cooperation with the recreation and parks department. It consists of: Kathy Auro, Richard Bankowsky, Evelyn Iagrossi, Joe Leto, Ellen Moynahan, and Gloria Weinrich. Please feel free to suggest trips to anyone on the committee.
