FAQ: Why should I challenge my assessment?


If you feel that the municipality has given you a market value that is more than you feel your house is worth in today’s market, you should challenge your assessment. You should also challenge your property tax assessment if you feel that your neighbors are paying less than you.


Under the New York State Real Property Tax Law (Section 730 NYRPTL) homeowners are entitled to reduce their Property Tax Assessment a maximum of 25% per year. The Municipality does NOT notify you of your eligibility. It is up to you to find out for yourself.


We can qualify you! There is no cost to qualify! Give us a call today at (516)/(631) 484-0654 or go to our application here. Stop paying more than you have to! Let the experts at P.T.R.C., Inc. help you save money today!

Remember, if you miss the deadline you must wait until the following year. File today!

Do you ever feel like you're overpaying on your property taxes? P.T.R.C. is dedicated to assuring all of our clients pay the lowest possible property taxes as required by law. 

Below we have answered a couple of Frequently Asked Questions by homeowners. If you have any questions you need answered, contact us today! We would be more than happy to assist you.

Q: How is my property tax determined?
A: Depending on where you live, the places that your tax money goes to differs. Nassau County’s taxing jurisdictions range in size from the county to everything that the county offers. For example, there are libraries, local school districts, cities and villages.  There are some cities and/or villages that have their own tax rolls which are prepared by the Department of Assessment. Village or city purposed and school purposes taxes are billed separately. However, the rest of the tax rates are added together and then multiplied by the assessment of your property. That assessment is equal to your property tax which includes tax for the county, town and special district purposes.


Q: Should I challenge my assessment if I own a private home and think the market value estimate is too high?
A: Yes. The houses around you in your neighborhood will help you determine what an accurate price range would be if you were to put your house up for sale.


Q: What if I own investment or a business property?
A: If you were to file a grievance, it must be an owner occupied 1,2, or 3 family home and you must live in it when seeking for relief.


Q: When is filing time?
A: Nassau - Jan 1st - March 3rd, 2014; Suffolk - May 3rd - May 20th, 2014


Q: Can I apply on my own?
A:  Yes. In several cases, there are homeowners that are unsure of what specific information is necessary when representing themselves for a property hearing. In order to fix that problem, PTRC’s experience and highest technology will provide you with everything you need.


Q: Who may sign the application form?
A: The owner, other applicant-taxpayer, or a representative who has the applicant’s written authorization.


Q: What if my request is turned down?
A: If your request is turned down, your property taxes will be unaffected and there are absolutely no penalties the following year if you choose to file again.

516-484-0654 or 631-484-0654


After Hurricane Sandy occurred, there were many speculations that price gouging was occurring at several gas stations in New Jersey and New York. The gas crisis that arose after the storm created much havoc at gas stations.

On Long Island, four stations were accused yesterday by the state attorney general for charging as much as $9 per gallon for regular gasoline after superstorm Sandy swept the East Coast.

The stations charged were as follows:
  • Shell – 408 Rockaway Tpke, Cedarhurst - $5.05 per gallon
  • Express Mart/Babylon Gas Station – 1000 Rte. 109, Lindenhurst - $4.99 per gallon
  • USA Petroleum – 11 E. Main Street, East Islip - $6.75 per gallon
  • USA Petroleum – 2664 Rte. 112, Medford - $9.00 per gallon

What do you think about price gouging? Did you get overcharged for gas after Hurricane Sandy? Let us know on our Facebook page, LINKED HERE.

Consumers can file complaints by calling 800-771-7755 or filling out a form at ag.ny.gov/hurricane-sandy-price-gouging-complaint-form. Consumers are also being advised to save any receipts they may have from gas stations.

Law Passed in Islip To Exceed Tax Cap


Property Tax Reduction Consultants 
125 Jericho Turnpike, Jericho, NY 11753
516-484-0654 or 631-484-0654


Earlier last week, the Islip Town Board paved the way for a massive property rate tax hike, voting unanimously to shatter the state-mandated tax cap amid fierce opposition from town residents.
After a long public hearing at Town Hall, the board passed the law. The 2% tax cap which is state-mandated requires local governments seeking to exceed it to pass a law authorizing the move. Last month a $118 million proposed budget was introduced that calls for 65% increase in town residential property taxes, which is 4% of residents total tax bill.
The proposed budget which calls for a 65% increase in property tax has stirred up much controversy in the community. Some residents are outraged by it, while others think it is necessary in order to maintain the town’s amenities.
