Residents concerned property taxes have errors
After Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano's home was underassessed, some Long Islanders worry their own property assessments may be incorrect.
The assessor's office uses three computer-based systems to determine the value of each property on Long Island, including the county's Land Records Viewer, which residents can check themselves. The Land Records Viewer keeps track of the property size and number of rooms in each home, while a second system tallies property values and taxes.
A spokesman for the county assessor's office says the information is as accurate as it can be, but residents who think there are errors should contact the office via phone or e-mail.
