Veterans Real Estate Tax Exemption
On January 8th, 2015 the Sayville School Board passed the New York State Veterans Real Estate Tax Exemption, which will go into effect for the 2015-2016 School Year. A representative from VFW Post 433 met with Mr. Ronald Devine, Tax Assessor for the Town of Islip and he provided the following information about the exemption
The Tax Assessor's Office is aware of the school district vote. In follow-up they will be sending out a letter to all veterans who are currently registered with them. (if you have never filed for the prior Veterans' Real Estate Tax Exemption you will not receive a letter and will need to contact them to do so). There are two categories of veterans exemptions. One requires no action on the part of the veteran. The new tax reduction will be applied automatically. The other type requires an application for Alternative Veterans Tax Exemption. This will require a copy of the DD214. If the veteran has a service connected disability, be prepared to prove the level of disability. It is our understanding that the widows of veterans are eligible for this exemption, however if you have never filed you will need to do so.
If you are not sure if you need to file an application, you may call their office at 631-224-5585. They are very accommodating, and will look up your records and let you know right away.
It is very important to note that this process must be done by March 1st to be in time for the 2015/2016 school year. That date is not as far away as one might think, especially for the snow birds.
This is all the information VFW Post 433 has on the Veterans Tax Exemption. If you have any question, please call the Tax Assessor's Office at the number above. Please do not call VFW Post 433 as we have no other information to provide.
VFW POST 433 Receives Grant from John C Dunphy Foundation
Thursday, October 9, 2014, Joan Furey, Commander of the VFW Post 433 located in Sayville held a general meeting for the benefit of their membership.
Just prior to discussing the official business of the evening, Commander Fuery announced that in attendance was a special guest, Karlyn Grasso (Financial Advisor and Public Relations Director of the John C. Dunphy Private Foundation.)
Karlyn proudly acknowledged the Veterans and expressed, from her heart of hearts, her personal appreciation and the appreciation our community shares for our Vets.
Karlyn recognized the efforts of the Veterans to raise funds used to support other Veterans in need.
Knowing whole heartedly that now is the time our Vets need support, Karlyn expressed the will of the John C. Dunphy Private Foundation as a friend to the VFW and presented a check in the amount of $10,000 dollars.
God bless America, our Veterans and all active service personnel.
