How tax bills changed with and without appeals

Nassau residents who appealed their tax assessment saw an average increase of $466 in their tax payments while those who did not paid an increase of $2,748.

Newsday's investigation into Nassau County's property tax assessment system examined how the tax bills of those who have challenged their assessments since 2010 compared to those who have not. The median bills of those who appealed increased $466 by the 2016-17 tax year compared with 2010-11, while the bills of those who did not appeal increased of $2,748. The median bills are those of typical property owners, both commercial and residential, whose burden falls halfway between the largest and smallest bills.

Here are the details for the county, the towns and cities, and 55 primary school districts. The effects are apparent in all three of the county property classes included in the results of Newsday’s analyses, which excluded a fourth class composed of telephone poles and other utility properties.
