There are many reasons why taxes increase year to year, including:
- An increase in the tax rate of a particular taxing district
- An increase in a property's assessed value
- An exemption that had been previously applied to a property may have expired or the applicant may have failed to renew the exemption
- New owners may not qualify for present exemptions on a property
The Town Assessor's Office will be able to determine the specific reason for the tax increase on a specific property. They can be reached at (631) 957-3014.
