Nassau County’s Department of Assessment will present a taxpayer assistance outreach program in several communities in the Town of Hempstead.

Equipped with computers linked to the county’s database, department staff will process property tax exemption applications on-site for senior citizens, people on disability, veterans, volunteer firefighters and emergency medical technicians.

The staff will also review home improvement exemptions, the basic School Tax Relief (STAR) program — for residents who own a home, condominium or cooperative apartment with an annual household income of less than $500,000 — and the Enhanced STAR, for residents aged 65 years or older with annual incomes of less than $79,050.
