The Deputy Assessor prepares an assessment roll which is used to establish each property owner’s fair share of village taxes. This is done by maintaining records of property ownership, tax exemptions, property values and physical inventory changes. Residents are encouraged to make inquiries regarding special tax exemptions that the Inc. Village of Floral Park has made available to senior citizens, veterans, Village volunteer firefighters and the physically challenged. The Floral Park assessment roll is independent and separate from the Nassau County roll and their assessment methods.
Residents are reminded that December 31, 2017 is the filing deadline for all village property tax exemptions. Senior Exemption Renewal Applications were mailed out in September. At this time, there has been no increase in the “maximum income limit of $37,400” established by New York State guidelines.
New Senior applicants can call the Assessment Department for an application.
Veterans applications and Volunteer Firefighter applications are available below as well as at Village Hall and at the Assessment Department located at 1 Pool & Garage Road. We remind the veterans that a local law passed in 2000 allows veterans who own shares in cooperative apartment complexes, to file for a partial tax exemption. We also remind and encourage any veteran having a Disability Rating or a change in his or her
Disability Rating, to contact the Assessment Department. Change requests and new applications must be submitted by the December 31st deadline.
If you are a new property owner in the village or you are a property owner who has a mailing address change or a bank change, please contact the Assessment Department as soon as possible to update our records and direct future tax bills and correspondence to the correct address or bank.
Contact the Assessment Department at 326-6305 for additional information or questions you may have on any of these issues.
