Legislator Vincent Muscarella Invites You To Attend A Property Tax Exemptions Workshop

If you live in and are the owner of a home, condominium or cooperative apartment, you may qualify for hundreds of dollars in property tax savings each year. To help you file for or learn more about the property tax exemptions you may be eligible for, the Nassau County Department of Assessment is bringing its office operations to our area. Department of Assessment staff will process property tax exemption applications (Veterans, Senior Citizen, Cold War Veterans, Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers, Limited Income Disability, and Home Improvement) on-site.


In addition, Nassau County also offers two types of School Tax Relief (STAR) property tax exemptions: Basic STAR (for residents who own and live in their own home, condominium or cooperative apartment with an annual household income of $500,000 or less) and Enhanced STAR (for senior citizens aged 65 years or older with annual incomes of $84,550 or less).



Homeowners who will be filing for an exemption can help expedite the processing of their application by bringing two (2) copies of required documentation. Applications and specific documentation requirements are available on the Department of Assessment website at: www.nassaucountyny.gov/assessment



“I urge all homeowners to take advantage of these worthwhile property tax savings workshops,” stated Legislator Muscarella.

Murray and Ahmad Bring Free Senior I.D. Program to Franklin Square Public Library

Event Hosted by Senator Hannon


Continuing to provide a vital safety service to senior citizens, Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray and Town Clerk Nasrin Ahmad are bringing the town’s heralded Senior I.D. Card Program to the Franklin Square Public Library, 19 Lincoln Road, Franklin Square on Monday, June 16th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event, hosted by Senator Kemp Hannon, will provide senior citizens with a free senior identification card, which can be helpful in medical emergencies. The card also has proved useful as a non-driver form of identification for senior discounts and other convenience purposes.


“These town issued I.D. cards come not only with a person’s name, description and photograph, but with detailed information on their allergies, doctors’ contact data, family telephone numbers and other vital information which can be very useful in the event of an emergency,” said Murray. “What’s more, many seniors who do not drive have expressed interest in this non-driver I.D. card as a useful tool to secure senior discounts.”


While many seniors are certainly enjoying their golden years here in the Town of Hempstead, several of them have physical ailments that can potentially put them at risk in certain situations. In an emergency, a town Senior I.D. Card may help medical technicians to quickly determine how to treat a particular person, given their allergies and other related information.


This card can also be used for everyday activities: Heading to the movies? Doing some shopping? Show your Town of Hempstead Senior I.D. Card and take advantage of great discounts available to seniors.


The Senior I.D. Card Program is administered by town staff, utilizing five computers and pre-printed forms. Experts from the Town Clerk’s Office provide instruction, answer questions and assist senior citizens in completing forms. Participants will be furnished with a laminated wallet-sized I.D. card, as well as a larger 8-1/2 x 8 document that can be displayed on the refrigerator door. Hempstead Town provides the service free-of-charge, and no records are kept by the town once an I.D. card has been created.


“I am proud to be working alongside Supervisor Murray to provide this service,” stated Ahmad. “It will serve an important role in an emergency and offer a convenient form of identification for those who don’t have a driver’s license.”


“Through the Town’s Senior Identification Program, senior citizens have the opportunity to carry a form of I.D. that could be helpful in the event of an emergency,” Hannon said. “I thank the Town of Hempstead for bringing this valuable program to seniors of my district.”


“What’s more convenient than having your personal information, physicians’ contacts and emergency numbers all in the palm of your hand?” said Murray. “We in the town are happy to provide this free service for our seniors.”
