Nassau County's Department of Assessment is bringing its office to Glen Cove Thursday, with computer's linked to the County's database on-hand to process exemption applications.
Staff members will process exemptions for veterans, senior citizens, Cold War veterans, volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers, limited income disability and home improvement.
The County also offers two types of School Tax Relief (STAR): basic applies to residents who own and live in their own home, condominium or cooperative apartment with an annual household income of $500,000 or less, and enhanced applies to senior citizens aged 65 years or older with annual incomes of $79,050 or less.
Those who wish to file are advised that the process can be expedited if they bring any documentation that is required for the exemption they are applying for.
Applications and specific documentation requirements are available on the Department of Assessment website.
For more information regarding basic and enhanced STAR or any other property tax exemption program, homeowners can contact the Department of Assessment Exemptions Division at (516) 571-1500.
Thursday's program is being sponsored by County Executive Edward Mangano in conjunction with Legis. Delia DeRiggi Whitton.
