Information for Senior Citizens

The District encourages senior citizens to be our guests at school holiday concerts, plays and performances. These events are free of charge and your attendance is welcomed. Please contact one of the community senior citizen clubs or the PPS Offices at 326-5580, for further information.


Senior Citizen Tax Exemptions

The Board of Education understands the difficulty that tax levy increases can place on our senior citizens, and has, in the past, regularly approved Senior Citizen Tax Exemptions. These exemptions can reduce property taxes for senior citizens by up to 50% based on a senior citizen’s annual income. That means that a senior citizen with low income would pay only half the amount of the school tax, which he or she would otherwise pay. Senior citizens can apply for this exemption by contacting the Nassau County Department of Assessment at 571-1500.
