If you are a Vet or a senior citizen you can apply. Be sure to apply to both Nassau, Town of Hempstead and the Village of Freeport. Each must be filed separately. You can contact the appropriate municipalities to find out when to file.

You may also file for a tax adjustment since values have gone down substantially, therefore, assessments should be lower.

I just wanted to add regardless of whatever exemptions you may be eligible for, you still have to qualify for the home without the exemptions, and apply after ownership.

1. Primary residence exemption/discount: available to all homeowners for primary residences in New York State

2. Veteran's exemption/discount: available to Veterans of the United States Armed Forces

3. Senior Citizen excemption/discount: available to qualified Senior Citizens

4. Religious Clergy: available to qualified members of the clergy.

P.S.: When I prequalify my clients for mortgage financing, I explain ALL of this and more about the HomeBuying experience. If you want to be prequalified for a Nassau County home purchase by a 22 year veteran mortgage professional and Local Mortgage Banker, give me a call. Prequalification is free and extremely thorough and you'll walk out of our meeting extremely well educated about the best way to buy a home in Nassau County.

You can also file for a tax grievance to reduce your taxes, and the dateline is March 1 of each year in Nassau County.
