You should not believe these rumors. I do not believe this is an accurate statement, as I myself was a previous resident of Freeport. Rumors are just that, rumors. You should check with the village. You can give them a call and they should be able to answer your questions directly. See the link below for their website.
Additionally, you may have gotten this mixed up with the STAR exemption. â€œSTARâ€ is an acronym for the New York Stateâ€™s School Tax Relief program. It includes a school property tax rebate and a partial property exemption from school taxes.
Again, you should give the village a call.
I hope this answered your question! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by the ways below.
Wishing you the best of luck,
