    A Fascinating Discussion with Dr. David Shulkin

    Secretary David Shulkin, the ninth Secretary of the US Department of Veterans Affairs, will share insights on January 30, 3:45-5:30pm, about his service to two very different Presidents and the current state of public service as he discusses his best selling book, It Shouldn’t Be This Hard To Serve Your Country.

    American veterans face a number of challenges in the country today - from chronic homelessness to mental health issues and PTSD to a chaotic and understaffed VA. While technology has evolved to keep up with the needs of the United States military, the same change and care for veterans are often regarded as lagging behind.

    Dr. David Shulkin, who served as the United States Secretary for Veteran’s Affairs in the Trump Administration from February 2017 until March 2018, and before that as Under Secretary of Veterans Affairs for Health in the Obama Administration, joins Rutgers for a candid discussion about the policy and politics of veterans’ affairs.

    Notice of Property Value Sessions - Bronx

    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 4, 10am-12pm. 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.
