Tax grievances piling up at LI town halls

Thousands of homeowners rushing to file property tax grievances before Tuesday's deadline packed town halls across Long Island Friday.
Homeowners can petition towns to lower their property tax assessment - thus hoping to pay the town less money.
"I think my house is overvalued especially since over a few years the prices have gone down dramatically," says George Sorensen, of Huntington Station.
Filing a grievance isn't an automatic victory for homeowners, as it could result in a higher tax bill - but many are willing to take that chance.
"I heard that there are a lot of people doing this, and I don't want to be the only one not saving money," says Mirko Pavlovich, of Greenlawn, who adds he already saved a couple thousand dollars from filing a grievance.
