Hempstead Town Receiver of Taxes Don Clavin has announced that he will host a series of Property Taxpayer Checkup Forums at local libraries. Clavin will discuss important issues such as assessment challenges, tax exemptions, tax discounts, property tax payment dates and convenient tax payment options.
"Residents will be able to address any concerns that they may have and obtain valuable information about challenging the assessed value of their property at my upcoming property tax forums,” said Clavin. “It is important that residents get a “taxpayer checkup” as we approach the annual filing period for property tax exemptions.”
