Town of Huntington Approves Superstorm Sandy Tax Relief
Property owners in the Town of Huntington who were affected by Superstorm Sandy will be able to apply for a refund on part of their 2013 property taxes. The Town of Huntington voted unanimously on December 6 to grant tax assessment relief for those properties affected by Superstorm Sandy.
The Superstorm Sandy Assessment Relief Act allows taxing jurisdictions to provide tax relief to property owners during the time they could not use their property. The legislation applies to all properties affected by Superstorm Sandy.
A refund for 2013 town taxes will range from 15 - 100% of a property’s improved value. The tax relief only applies to the Town portion of property tax. Suffolk County has also voted to take part in the program and school boards also have an option to join.
