    Notice of Property Value Sessions - Queens

    Every January, the Department of Finance mails each property owner in New York City a Notice of Property Value (NOPV). NOPVs give you information about your property, including its assessed value, market value, exemptions, and property description. It is not a tax bill and does not require a payment.  

    During a Notice of Property Value Session, receive one-on-one assistance regarding your property taxes with the New York City Department of Finance and the Tax Commission on February 27, 5-7pm. Understand your NOPV. Inquire about your market and assessed values. Change your property’s description. Save money on your property taxes by applying for exemptions.

    March 15 is the deadline to apply for exemptions. The City of New York offers tax exemptions and abatements for seniors, veterans, clergy members, people with disabilities, and other homeowners. These benefits can lower your property tax bill.

    Veteran Voices Performance Workshop

    Attend the Veteran Voices Performance Workshop on February 29, 3-6pm. These workshops are designed to guide veterans through a process of writing and performance that empowers them to speak their truths, share their experiences, bear witness together, and exist in a space of creativity, compassion, and camaraderie. Family members are welcome to attend.

    Warrior cultures of the past such as the Greeks, Romans, and Native Americans, welcomed their military home in rituals of storytelling. Following in that tradition, the Veteran Voices program seeks to revive these practices through creating an environment for veterans to share their stories, helping them to express those stories in a way that informs others, helping them recognize that their experiences do not define them, are universal, and are part of a long line of experiences from warriors throughout history, and lastly, helping them become comfortable sharing on stage if they so desire.
