An apparent glitch is showing huge tax increases on properties listed on Realtor.com for the 2019-2020 tax year.
One Greenlawn property, for example, in the Harborfields school district, has taxes of $14,46.58, according to the Town of Huntington website. But the real estate website claims taxes went up to $28,493 for the 2019-2020 year.
A Huntington property with a true tax bill of$11,698.78 is showing a $18,592 bill on Realtor.com
Taxes have already been paid for the 2019-2020 tax year.
One Facebook user said they had contacted Reator.com, which said the tax information came from Suffolk County.
