Town Receiver of Taxes to Hold
Property Tax Exemption Seminars
North Hempstead, NY – Town of North Hempstead Receiver of Taxes Charles Berman will be holding a series of Property Tax Exemption Seminars throughout the Town over the next several months. Residents can learn about important changes to STAR (Basic and Enhanced), Senior Citizens, Veterans and other exemptions that could help lower property taxes. The income limit for the 2019-2020 Enhanced STAR Exemption for seniors is under $86,300 (based on 2017 adjusted gross income, less any taxable IRA distributions), making some previously ineligible homeowners now qualified for the exemption. Staff members will be on hand to distribute applications and answer questions.
Dates, times and locations for the Property Tax Exemption Seminars are:
• Tuesday, October 2, 7-8:45 p.m. at Hillside Public Library, 155 Lakeville Rd, New Hyde Park
