Clergy exemption takes $463 million off Nassau County tax rolls

Property tax exemptions for homes owned by clergy members in Nassau County shifted more than $463 million in valuation onto other taxpayers last year,  more than double the amount in 2008,  a Newsday analysis of state records shows.

The growing shift in the tax burden came as the number of clergy with the exemptions nearly doubled — from 446 in 2008 to 830 in 2018, records show.

The $463 million in clergy exemptions in Nassau in 2018 was 78 percent of the $594.2 million in value shifted statewide because of the clergy exemption. In 2008, $215.8 million was the value of the clergy-owned property exempted from the Nassau tax rolls.
