The first half of the Nassau County school taxes were just sent out to every commercial and residential tax payer. Even if your real estate tax assessment did not increase since last year, your taxes increased.
The 2% cap passed last year is on the budgets, but if some assessments were decreased in your school districts, possibly by successful real estate tax reduction complaints, the tax rate increased more than the 2% cap. The next time you can protest Nassau County Real Estate taxes is in January 2015. Certainly, every tax bill should be checked for accuracy. If there was any construction or substantial property improvement, there are tax exemptions that can be applied for before December 31st.
