Assemblyman Mike Miller to Host Property Tax Forum

As part of the ongoing “Assembly in Your Area” initiative, Assemblyman Mike Miller (D-Queens) will sponsor an event with the New York City Department of Finance on Wednesday, January 27 at 8 PM at Richmond Hill Block Association One Stop. The forum will educate Queens residents on the state property tax assessment, which property owners can expect to receive within the next several weeks.

Property taxes are collected every year to pay for social services such as schools, fire departments, and police departments. A property owner’s tax bill is determined by two major components: the property's taxable assessment and the tax rates of the area in which the property is located.

“Property taxes can confuse a lot of people,” said Assemblyman Mike Miller. “We want to make sure that people understand the process and get an accurate assessment of their homes. There are exemptions for households enrolled in the STAR program and senior or disabled citizens. Stop by to make sure you’re not paying too much.”

For more information about this event, please contact Assemblyman Miller’s office at (718) 805-0950. To learn more about the property tax assessment, visit
