PSA - VALUE ADJUSTMENT BOARD
NASSAU COUNTY VALUE ADJUSTMENT BOARD
John A. Crawford, Clerk to the VAB
The Value Adjustment Board (VAB) provides an independent forum for property owners to appeal their property value or denial of an exemption, classification or tax deferral.
You may request a meeting with the property appraiser and/or file a petition with the VAB to appeal: (1) Assessment of your property’s value; (2) Denial or late filing of an exemption or classification; (3) Denial of a tax deferral; or (4) Portability decision.
Further information and petition forms may be obtained at www.nassauclerk.com. Look under “Departments” and click on “Value Adjustment Board.” Look for “VAB General Information and Important Notes.”
For convenience of online filing of value petitions, the VAB Clerk has implemented a software program which will be activated upon the Property Appraiser’s mailing of the Truth in Millage (TRIM) notices to taxpayers, currently scheduled for August 17. Petitions related to valuation issues may be filed at any time during the taxable year on or before the 25th day following the mailing of the TRIM notice. Based on the TRIM notice mailing on August 17, the deadline to file a timely petition to the VAB is September 11, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. in the Clerk’s office or midnight if filing online.
