Hicksville Public Schools recognizes and appreciates the veterans who have served to defend and protect our country. At a Board meeting on February 26th the Board of Education unanimously adopted a resolution in support of the Veterans Exemption which was passed and signed into legislation by Governor Cuomo. The district held the required hearings and adopted the resolution prior to the March 15th deadline required. At that time we did not have information from the county assessor’s office with regard to the filing process forveterans. We have since been advised by the county assessor’s office that the exemption will be applied to the 2015-16 school tax bills of qualifying veterans.
