Elderly Little Neck homeowner gets $18K refund following property tax overcharge


A Little Neck homeowner recently received an $18,000 refund following a year-long battle against a property tax overcharge.

In July 2020, senior resident Livia Boyadjian learned that her property tax bill on Annadale Lane had jumped from $2,492 to $4,802, due to the city erroneously combining her lot with construction on the vacant lot next door. The Little Neck resident was unable to address this error while simultaneously caring for her late husband’s critical illness at the time.
