Homeowners can still file a grievance on their property taxes, March 1st was the deadline until Nassau County executive Bruce Blakeman granted a 30 day grace period. The new deadline is April 3rd.
While many homeowners use a service to grieve their taxes, those services typically charge half the savings you might receive. The process it’s self is the same if you were to do it yourself.
If you believe that your Nassau County property has been assessed incorrectly and you want to appeal your assessment, you can do so online through the Nassau County Assessment Review Commission (ARC) website.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to appeal your assessment online:
Visit the Nassau County Assessment Review Commission (ARC) website at https://www.nassauarc.org/.
On the homepage, click on the “Assessment Appeal” button located on the left-hand side of the page.
You will be redirected to the Assessment Review Commission’s online portal. Click on the “File an Appeal” button to begin your appeal.
If you have previously filed an appeal with the ARC, enter your user ID and password to log in. If you are a first-time user, you will need to create an account by clicking on the “New User” button and providing your email address and a password.
Once you have logged in, you will be asked to provide information about your property. This includes your property’s tax map number, section, block, and lot number, as well as your property’s address and the current assessed value.
After providing your property information, you will need to provide a reason for your appeal. This could include discrepancies in the assessed value of your property compared to other similar properties in your neighborhood, errors in the assessment data used by the ARC, or other factors that may affect your property’s value.
You will also need to provide evidence to support your appeal. This could include recent sales of similar properties in your area, property appraisals, or other documentation that demonstrates why you believe your property’s assessed value is incorrect.
After submitting your appeal, you will receive a confirmation email from the ARC. You can also log in to your account on the ARC website to check the status of your appeal.
ARC will review your appeal and may request additional information or documentation from you.
Once the ARC has reviewed your appeal, they will issue a decision. If your appeal is successful, your property’s assessed value will be adjusted accordingly. If your appeal is not successful, you may still have the option to appeal further through the New York State Supreme Court.
Appealing your assessment online through the Nassau County Assessment Review Commission website is a straightforward process that can be completed in a few simple steps. By providing the necessary information and evidence, you can make a compelling case for why your property’s assessed value should be adjusted to better reflect its true market value.
Homeowners should check their annual assessment and appeal any increase since a new assessment of homes is done annually.
The Assessment Review Commission also holds community workshops on how to grieve your taxes with how-tos and videos on their website which provides great information on how to file an appeal. Visit the website here. You can file an appeal using the Assessment Review on the Web (AROW) here.
