District Statement on Lawsuit Against Nassau County:

Nassau County invokes the LIPA Reform Act of 2013 as the catalyst for unilaterally removing $1.6 million of LILCO properties from the District’s certified tax levy, properties that have been on Manhasset’s assessment roles since at least 1986, and then taking that opportunity to once again disavow its obligations under the Nassau County Guaranty to make the school district whole on its property tax levy. 

The County’s unauthorized actions will adversely impact the District and its taxpayers in a number of significant ways, including the shifting of tax burden from LIPA to the other taxpayers of Manhasset, including residential taxpayers, and corrupting the process for determining the District’s allowable tax cap for 2016-17 and beyond.
