Homeowners on Nassau reassessment: It's unfair, flawed, lacks transparency
Three months after anxious Nassau residents packed a meeting about County Executive Laura Curran's reassessment overhaul, many attended another meeting Monday night at Mineola Middle School armed with more questions and criticism.
One by one, frustrated Nassau homeowners blasted Curran's reassessment overhaul. They criticized the new system, saying it's unfair, flawed and lacks transparency.
Many say they're upset the county hasn't released the formula used to calculate the home values.
Members of the Legislature grilled County Assessor David Moog about the effectiveness of Curran's "Taxpayers Protection Plan." It would allow for a five-year phase-in of tax increases that Nassau property owners will see from the recent countywide reassessment of home market values.
Curran says the plan is part of the process to fix the damage done by the Mangano administration.
But many residents like Frank DiBennetto, of Mineola, say the plan won't do much to ease payments because the assessments are too high.
The tax protection plan is part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's state budget. It remains to be seen whether it'll be approved by an April 1 deadline.
