Anyone who purchases improved property in Suffolk County should question if there was any tax exemption granted to the previous owner such as a Veterans or Senior Citizen exemption. This exemption would not pass on to the new owner and the tax could change considerably when the exemption is removed from the property.
Persons eligible for a tax exemption must file the appropriate paperwork by March 1st of each year in order to qualify on their next tax bill. Exemptions include:
Senior Citizens (65 and older)
STAR (School Tax Relief) Program
For further information regarding exemptions, you must contact the Department of Assessment at 631-451-6300 or click visit their website.
