Hempstead Town Receiver of Taxes Don Clavin has announced that he will host a series of Property Taxpayer Checkup Forums at local libraries. As part of his commitment to making government work effectively for the residents of the township, Clavin will discuss important issues such as assessment challenges, tax exemptions, tax discounts, property tax payment dates and convenient tax payment options.
“At my upcoming property tax forums, residents will have an opportunity to get a “taxpayer checkup,” address any concerns that they may have and obtain valuable information about challenging the assessed value of their property,” said Clavin. “As we approach the annual filing period for property tax exemptions, it is important that residents understand the types of property tax exemptions for which they may be eligible and how to apply for them.”
