The Lindenhurst Village Assessment Department is responsible for identifying, listing and assessing all real property and preparing the tentative and final assessment rolls for almost 10,000 parcels throughout the Village of Lindenhurst.
Exemptions – The Assessor’s office receives and processes applications for all property tax exemptions. There are several different exemptions available in the Village of Lindenhurst. The available exemptions are for firefighters and volunteer ambulance workers, senior citizens, veterans, non-profit organizations and clergy.
If an exemption application is approved, a certain percentage will be deducted from the assessment of a particular property. Each exemption has a different set of guidelines. All exemptions only affect the Village tax bill.
- Firefighters and Volunteer Ambulance Workers Exemption – In order to qualify, one must have a minimum of five years of service with the Lindenhurst Fire Department as of October 1 (for the year in which the application is being made), be the owner of residential property in the Village of Lindenhurst and reside at the property. This exemption must be renewed each year. Exemption forms become available in June and are due by October 1.

In order to qualify for this exemption, a senior must not have an annual income of more than $37,400.00; proof of income is required. This exemption must be renewed each year. Renewal applications are mailed out in June. If a renewal application is not received, then please call the Assessment Department at (631) 957-7506. Exemption forms become available in June and are due by October 1.
- Veterans’ Exemption – This exemption is a one-time filing exemption and stays on the parcel until the veteran’s death or sale of property. Exemptions forms become available in June and are due by October 1.
