Assessment Department

*** According to the New Law signed by Governor Cuomo, property owners who received the Senior Citizens Partial Tax Exemption on their 2020 Assessment Roll (2021 tax year) will automatically receive the exemption for the 2021 Assessment Roll (2022 Tax year). Recipients are not required to renew their exemption unless there’s been a change to the primary address, addition of owner to the deed, transfer of property to a new owner or applicant passed away.

The process for first-time applicants remains the same. The senior citizen partial tax exemption applications are accepted by regular mail or electronically. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Assessment Department at 516-676-3564 or by email at [email protected] ***

There are approximately 7,000 parcels of land in Glen Cove. The Glen Cove Department of Assessment determines the assessed value of each parcel to serve as a basis for property taxes.

Exemptions

Various exemptions are available for qualified taxpayers that can help reduce their tax burden. The most common exemptions are veterans’, senior citizens’ and STAR exemptions. These are all partial exemptions and do not apply to all levels of real estate taxes.

There are two types of Veteran Exemptions. The first is the Alternative Veteran Exemption which is based upon service during wartime or the cold war whether service was in a combat area and if there was any degree of service-connected disability. The Eligible Funds Exemption is based on money received by veterans as a result of military service. Veterans’ exemptions apply to county and city taxes, but not to school or special district taxes.

Senior Citizens Exemptions

Eligible seniors can receive a property tax reduction of five to fifty percent based upon their income. All income of (including Social Security and non-taxable income) all owners counts toward eligibility. All owners must be sixty-five or older (if a husband and wife apply, only one needs be sixty-five, but both incomes must be counted even if only one spouse owns the property). Senior citizens exemptions apply to city taxes and to school taxes unless the eligible senior has a child living on the premises and attending public school.

Senior citizens meeting specific income criteria are eligible for “Enhanced” STAR. All other primary-residence homeowners in Nassau are eligible for “Basic” STAR program. Finally, mixed-use properties (i.e. combined business and residential properties) which are owner-occupied are now eligible for a STAR exemption.
