New Assessor Offers Recommendations to Improve Department

Written by Joe Scotchie Friday, 28 August 2009 00:00

The assessed value of a property does not in itself determine the amount of taxes on a property in Nassau County. Assessments only determine an individual property’s share of the taxes imposed by municipalities, school districts or special taxing districts.

That was only one of the messages that Nassau County Assessor Ted Jankowski, appointed by County Executive Suozzi in January of this year, wished to convey at a recent visit to Anton Community Newspapers.

A 30-year veteran of property assessment, with most of that time spent in Massachusetts, Jankowski admitted the situation in Nassau County is more unique than anything he has seen in his assessment career. Assessment appeals are not uncommon anywhere from commercial property owners, but in Nassau County such appeals reach extraordinary high levels among both commercial and residential homeowners.
