Senator Kemp Hannon
6th District New York
10-14: Property Tax Exemptions Workshop



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.


To help you file for or learn more about the property tax exemptions for which you may be eligible, Senator Hannon and Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano have partnered to bring the Department of Assessment office operations to the Bethpage Library (47 Powell Avenue, Bethpage) on Tuesday, October 14, from 1:00 - 3:00 pm. For directions, click here.


Equipped with specially configured computers linked to the County’s database, the Department of Assessment will 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).


Homeowners who will be filing for any of these exemptions can help expedite the processing of their application by bringing extra copies of any documentation that is required for the property tax exemption for which he or she is applying.  Applications and specific documentation requirements are available on the Department of Assessment website at


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