Yes, the county property tax can be reassessed. If you property value has dropped significatly but your property tax has not changed much, you can file to reduce the tax with county. I know people either hire a real estate assessment consultant, or contact the county assessor's office directly or go in front of a judge yourself. Nassau county is already in the process of reassessing property values in some areas for 2009-2010, 2010-2011 school year.

Property taxes can be reassessed by the county if values have substantially declined. Most counties in areas where the real estate market crashed are already in the process of reassessing property values for the new fiscal year which usually starts in July.

If you think your property value has fallen below what the current assessment is, you can get forms from the county assessors office to have the value reviewed. You do not need to pay anyone else to do this.

Check on your county webpage for more information on what is needed to submit a request for reassessment.

Good luck
