Letter: School Board Supports Veterans’ Tax Break

The Island Trees School Board adopted a resolution on February 12, 2014, to reduce property taxes for military veterans and Gold Star parents - those who have lost a child serving in the armed forces. The new law signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo in December provides eligible veterans with a partial tax exemption by lowering their property’s assessed value.  Dennis Dunne, Nassau County legislator, thanked the Board on behalf of all Nassau County veterans. For questions about the new law or eligibility requirements, please call the  Nassau County Department of Assessment, (516) 571-1500.
