The MLB season is still only a few weeks old but we are already starting to see our hometown teams trending in different directions. Surprisingly, the New York Mets have been the more prominent team the last two seasons, but order seems to have been restored in 2017. The Yankees are one of the best teams in the MLB and the Mets can't seem to get out of their own way. Let's see if they can turn it around and give us Long Islanders another fun summer at Citi Field. Here is a brief roundup to get you caught up»

The New York Yankees 
The Yankees have had just about everything go right for them to this point in the season. They are in first place in the A.L East at 23-13 and their home record of 13-6 ties them for the most home wins in the league. They have been carried by the spectacular clutch hitting of Aaron Judge, their young yet massive right fielder. They have also seen some of their veterans turning back the clock to produce early in the season. C.C Sabathia has been brilliant and Chase Headley returned from an awful 2016 season to be one of the leaders on this very young team. Have you gotten out to see the Bronx Bombers yet this season? If not, here is their upcoming schedule»


The New York Mets 
Murphy's Law certainly applies to this years New York Mets. What can go wrong, has gone wrong and they can't seem to dig their way out of the hole. They have lost Noah Syndegaard, Yoenis Cespedes, Travis D'arnaud, Lucas Duda, Steven Matz, Matt Harvey. Asdrubal Cabrera and Seth Lugo all for a significant amount of time at one point this season. The only bright spot on the team has been young center fielder Michael Conforto who some experts said might not even make the team this season. The Mets are currently 16-22 and looking for anything to get them started again. Here is a look at their upcoming schedule» 


Take a break and enjoy yourself this weekend, tax season is over and the sun will be shining. Thank you to all of our clients and employees for making this another successful property tax reduction season!

  • Changing air filters will allow your unit to use 30% less energy during the summer months. 
  • Open windows at night ONLY to naturally lower the temperature in your home. 
  • Placing ice in front of a fan will allow for spot cooling and less air conditioner use. 
  • Brush your teeth in the shower during the Summer to save clean water. 
  • Start a family change jar and save up for a small family vacation at the end of Summer! 
Come Back Strong Next Year

One Week Left to File Suffolk County

(516) 484-0654 or (631) 484-0654


There are only 7 days, 168 hours, 10,080 minutes and 604,800 seconds until the Suffolk County tax grievance deadline. If you haven't already filed, this might be the best time to do it. We look forward to hearing from you!  

Quick Reminders 
  • Filing a property tax grievance is absolutely risk-free. If you don't get a reduction during the review period, you will not be charged and we will also leave with nothing. 
  • We get paid based on a percentage of the reduction you earn. No reduction results in no pay for our team. 
  • You can fill out an application on our website today! 
  • The Small Claims Assessment Review (SCAR) is the next step if you don't earn a reduction right off the bat. There is a $30 Fee to purchase an index number at this level, but it will guarantee your case to be heard. 
  • We will handle ALL the paperwork. 
  • We have been doing this for over THIRTY years and we have earned MILLIONS of dollars in reductions for our clients. 
  • There is no better team on Long Island! 
Suffolk County Deadline 
Suffolk County is a little bit different than Nassau County. We have to manually submit your applications so we will be cutting off the deadline a little earlier than the 16th. Get your applications done today to be safe! 
What To Expect 
The process takes awhile for both Nassau and Suffolk County and filing now will make you eligible for reductions in 2018. Just to clear up any confusion on that. If the review boards grant you a reduction, you can receive the reduction in a number of different ways: 
  • You'll pay your taxes based on the lower assessed value that the courts determined. 
  • A refund check could be issued for the over-payment of taxes.  
  • A partial refund check and a partial adjustment could be issued as well. Think of it as a half and half.

It's time for a Fiesta Long Island! Cinco de Mayo is here and it falls on a Friday this year so the party is definitely on. Whether you are going out with a spouse or a group of friends, there are plenty of options for you all across the island. We aren't the Domincan Republic or Cuba, but this island knows how to do Latin American cuisine like the pros!

Maria's Mexican & Latin Cuisine 
211 Smithtown Blvd. Nesconset, New York 
Do you like live music, dancing and a great fiesta? If so, Maria's is going to be your spot on the 5th day of May! They have a delicious authentic Mexican menu including Tapas and Latin American dishes that will make you feel like you're on vacation. If this is going to be a night where you Uber home, they also have a great assortment of drink specials that includes mojitos, margaritas and basically anything with tequila in it! Have a great time!
Del Fuego
St. James- Babylon- Patchogue 
Holy Guacamole! This delicious Tex-Mex destination has three locations all throughout Long Island so you won't have to go very far to celebrate the holiday. Their Happy Hour specials are a can't miss, but get there early, they're going to fill up quick. If you're looking for a dining experience, we would HIGHLY recommend splitting a guacamole to start. It's fresh, delicious and better for you than a giant quesadilla. But if you want the giant quesadilla, it is also amazing and we are NOT going to judge you!
Besito Mexican Restaurant 
Huntington- Roslyn- West Islip
If you're looking for a more quaint dining experience on this holiday, this is the place for you. The service is top notch, the food is unreal and the experience has a very classy feel. If you're looking for something to start you off, try the Queso Fundido and tell us you have tasted something better. Their menu items are certainly not boring and this outside the box thinking earned them Best of Long Island honors. If Cinco de Mayo falls on date night, this is the perfect place to take your special someone.

Here at Property Tax Reduction Consultants, our team is dedicated to getting you the reductions you deserve no matter what day of the year it is. Cinco de Mayo means it is almost the end of Suffolk County property tax season and there is almost no time left to file for grievance!

Suffolk County History| Suffolk County Tax Reductions

Suffolk County and Nassau County could both be their own states if you went by population alone. This island is home to millions of New Yorkers, each with their own story. But do you know the story of the county that you call home? Here is how Suffolk County came to be»
  • Did you know that Suffolk County is roughly 1,000 square miles and it actually makes up 2/3 of Long Island? 
  • Did you know that even though Suffolk County is geographically bigger, it has significantly less citizens? 
  • We all know Long Island is not very wide, but did you know Suffolk County is only 26 miles wide at its widest point? From sound to shore only 26 miles-- wow!
  • The first humans to inhabit the Long Island are were the Algonquins roughly 10,000 years ago! In the 17th century, the Dutch arrived and claimed the land as their own. There were roughly 6,000 Native Americans here at that time. 
  • In the 1670's, The Duke of York appointed Thomas Dongan to be the governor. He established Suffolk County as one of the 12 original counties in the Province of New York. 
  • During the Revolutionary War Era, colonists who fought for the rebels would use the north shore of Suffolk County to transmit messages to Connecticut. On a clear day, you can see the coast of Connecticut relatively easily. 
  • The University of Stony Brook opened in 1962 and that solidified Suffolk County as a true destination for families and scholars alike. 
  • Today Suffolk County is home to 1.4 million residents and we are all proud Long Islanders! Suffolk is somewhat peaceful compared to Nassau County which has a more tightly packed, city-feel to it. 
Somewhere along the line property taxes started to make living on Long Island much more difficult. We want to relieve that burden as much as we can by giving you an opportunity to reduce your property taxes with P.T.R.C. Inc.
