Homeowners in Nassau County angry over new assessment process

ELMONT – Homeowners in Nassau County say they are upset and confused after receiving their tax impact notice in the mail that revealed the county’s newly-assessed home values.

Over 200 homeowners packed a public assessment forum held by Hempstead Receiver of Taxes Donald Clavin to get answers about the county’s new assessment process.

“Our houses are being assessed for all this money, but where are we getting this money from? Nobody is getting a raise,” said Bruce Smith of Franklin Square.

County Executive Laura Curran overhauled the current tax assessment system this year, saying that some homeowners would see a hike in their property taxes while others would see a significant decrease.
