Proposal For ‘Taxpayer Bill Of Rights’ Divides Nassau County Residents


SOME ARE ASKING FOR HIM TO RESIGN. WE’LL HAVE MORE TONIGHT. THANK YOU. ADVOCATES CALL IT TAXPAYER BILL OF RIGHTS. THE GOAL PROTECTING PROPERTY OWNERS BEING REASSESSED IN NASSAU COUNTY. OTHERS CLAIM IT’S ALL ABOUT POLITICS. JENNIFER McLOGAN HAS THE STORY FROM MINNEOLA. HOMEOWNERS CHALLENGE THEIR REASSESSMENTS IN THE PAST ARE SEEING A JUMP. THE OTHER HALF WILL PAY LESS WHEN BILLS COME DREW NEXT APRIL 1st. WHAT THE COUNTY EXEC DID EXECUTIVE IS DOING IS THE BEST POSSIBLE. IT SEEMS TO BE BADLY POLITICIZED THIS SUMMER IN A FRUSTRATING BATTLE AS THE ONCE WEALTHY COUNTY SEEKS FINANCIAL STABILITY. AN ASSESSMENT WAS DONE AND RESULTED IN MASSIVE AMOUNT OF ERRORS AND RESULTED IN CONFUSION AMONG THE RESIDENTS AND LACK OF FAITH IN THE PROCESS. THE GOP MAJORITY PROPOSING A TAXPAYER BILL OF RIGHTS. A LIMIT TO CHANGE THE ASSESSMENT LEVEL, THE ASSESSOR MUST LIVE IN NASSAU AND INCREASE IN PUBLIC HEARINGS. THE PUBLIC HAS A RIGHT TO KNOW HOW THEIR TAXES WERE DETERMINED. THE DEPARTMENT OF ASSESSMENT UTILIZED MODELS, THEY UTILIZED FORMULAS. I FEEL IT SHOULD BE MORE EQUITABLE. HOMEOWNERS SEEM SPLIT. DEMOCRATS CALL THE BILL OF RIGHTS A GOP EMPLOY TO STIR OUTRAGE AND CONTAIN CONTROL OF THE LEGISLATOR IN NOVEMBER. WE’RE MOVING FORWARD. WE ARE ON THE ROAD TO FAIRNESS AND ACCURACY. THEY WERE TWIDDLING THUMBS FOR BETTER PART OF TEN YEARS WHILE THE SYSTEM BROKE AND WENT INTO SHAMBLES. POLITICAL OBSERVERS TELL US BOTH SHOULD EMBRACE, FIX THE PROBLEM AND THE FIVE YEAR PHASE IN PLAN. FROM LONG ISLAND, CBS 2 NEWS.
