Looking Ahead to 2024 in Nassau County

We hope you and your family had a joyous holiday season, and we wish you the best for 2024. In this article, we’ll give you a quick look back at 2023, and provide you with a heads-up about things that will happen in early 2024 that you should know about and act upon.

Looking Back at 2023

As 2023 began, many expected that an economic slowdown, coupled with high inflation, would prove ruinous to the national economy. Thankfully, none of this materialized: while inflation is still a concern, it has moderated somewhat, and the economy continues to grow at a relatively healthy pace.

In October 2023, the 1st half 2023/24 School Tax bill was issued, which is the final tax year in which the 5-Year Reassessment Phase-in will be reflected on the tax bill.  Beginning with the 2024/25 tax year, the 2020/21 reassessment will be fully realized, meaning there will be no further TPP exemption after the current 2023/24 tax year.

A high point in October 2023 occurred when Nassau County Comptroller Elaine Phillips made statements strongly advising residents to grieve their property tax assessments (a sentiment we align with). As reported in the LI Herald, Ms. Phillips, attending a Franklin Square Civic Association meeting, put it very simply and eloquently: “the moral of the story is: grieve your taxes. Because if you don’t, your neighbor is.”

The year 2023 had some great news for Maidenbaum as well. We launched a new client portal at https://clientportal.mptrg.com that will keep you “in the loop” with real-time status updates about your tax challenge. Make sure to bookmark this URL! We’ve also updated our website with new features, including our new Incorporated Village Deadline Date page—which lets you see whether your village conducts its own assessment or uses the County’s assessment—and our City Deadline Date page that lets you see the unique deadlines for the cities of Glen Cove and Long Beach.

Looking Ahead to 2024

While no one can know what 2024 will bring us in terms of the economy or in the world of politics, it’s crystal clear that Nassau County residents will need to get ready for some important communications from the County—and some deadlines—in the coming months. Here they are:
