Can I File Even If I’ve Missed The Deadline?

It's that time of year when things are coming to a close for us. We do see online people wondering about filing beyond the deadline. 



You wanted to know if you could file a property tax grievance after the Nassau County April 2nd or the Suffolk County May 15th deadline passes?

Once this deadline has passed, a grievance cannot be filed for that tax period. 


You must wait until the following grievance period to file again for the subsequent tax year.

If you run into the issue of my property tax grievance from last year is still not determined.


Then yes, you will have to reapply. You only have a once a year opportunity to file a tax grievance. Once a tax year’s tax grievance deadline passes, there is no recourse to file for that year.

Be sure that you are filing a tax grievance each year, this will ensure that you will not miss an opportunity for a property tax reduction. Set a reminder to contact PTRC ahead of schedule. 

Remember, The grievance process is a long one. It could take 18 months from beginning to end. However, regardless of when your case is settled, the results will always be retroactive to the beginning of the tax year for which you filed your property tax grievance.
