A property tax bill, also known as a Statement of Account, shows

  • How much tax you owe
  • How the tax was calculated
  • Any exemptions, abatements, and credits that were applied to reduce your bill

The Department of Finance is testing a new version of the Property Tax Bill Quarterly Statement. If you received a property tax bill printed in color, you must pay the total amount due by the indicated date.

If you need information about your property tax bill or account, you can look up property information online, including:

  • Amount due, charges, and interest
  • Payment history
  • Status of exemptions or credits
  • Tax rate and tax class

You will need the property’s address or the Borough-Block-Lot (BBL)number.

If you are a co-op owner, you must get information about yourproperty taxes, account, and exemption status from your co-op management office.

Bills are mailed four weeks before they are due. If you're a property owner anddon’t own a co-op, you’ll be mailed a property tax bill if you pay the taxes yourself and have a balance due. About a month before your taxes are due, you can also view your bill online.

Automatic Payments

If you signed up for automatic payment, you will continue to receive property tax bills in the mail.

Co-Op Owners

If you own a co-op, your co-op’s managing agent, or board of directors gets the property tax bill for the entire building. You can contact them for payment and exemption information for your apartment.Contact DOF to request a printout with exemption and abatement information for your apartment.

Owners with Mortgages

Most property owners who have a mortgage don’t receive property tax bills. If a bank or mortgage company pays your taxes for you, they will receive the bill electronically.

Even if you don't normally get a bill because a mortgage company or bank pays your property taxes, you will still get a bill from DOF if you owe charges from another agency, such as sidewalk repair and water and sewer fees. You are responsible for paying the charges, even though you have a mortgage.

Even if you don’t receive a bill, you’re responsible for making sure the bill will be paid. If your mortgagelender is saying you owe something other than what appears on the property tax bill, you should contact the mortgage lender and request documentation of that bill.

Third Party Notification

If you are 65 or olderor have a disability, you can choose another person to get copies of your property tax bills and notices. This is called "third party notification." You can get the application online or by mail.

Once a City property mortgage is paid in full, the lending bank or mortgage company will give the property owner a document called a Satisfaction of Mortgage. At that same time, the lender must also notify the Department of Finance (DOF) that the mortgage has been satisfied, so DOF can update its records.

If the mortgage lender has also been paying City property taxes for the owner, DOF will start billing the owner for the taxes they are responsible for paying based upon the mortgage payoff date. The owner will start to receive a property tax bill, also called a Statement of Account, for that property either quarterly or semi-annually.

If your lender has already contacted DOF, but you are not getting your property tax bills or the mailing address or billing name is incorrect, you can email DOF.

Contact the Department of Finance.

You can request to find out if a mortgage company has been removed from the billing information after the mortgage satisfaction has been filed.

Property tax bills are due semi-annually (twice a year) or quarterly (four times a year), depending on the assessed or actual assessed value of the property.

If your property's assessed value goes over $250,000 you may receive a notice from DOF informing you that you will be billed semi-annually instead of quarterly.

Due Date on Weekend or Holiday

If the payment due date or grace period due date (for quarterly payers) falls on a weekend or a federal holiday, the payment is due the next business day.

Grace Period

If you pay quarterly, you get a 15-day, interest-free grace period. You won’t be charged interest for payments postmarked as late as July 15, October 15, January 15, or April 15.

If the date falls on a weekend or City holiday, it’s due by the following business day.

Early Payments

If you pay before the due date, you’ll get a discount. For quarterly payers, the earlier you pay, the bigger your discount.

If you pay by:

  • July 15: 0.5% discount for paying the full amount due
  • October 15: 0.25% discount for paying the remaining balance
  • January 15: 0.125% discount for paying the remaining balance

If you pay semi-annually and pay the entire amount owed for the tax year by July 1, you’ll get a 0.5% discount.

Late Payments

A payment is considered late if it isn’t paid or if a mailed payment isn’t postmarked by the due date or grace period due date (quarterly payers only). The Department of Finance is required by law to charge interest on the outstanding amount of property tax until it’s paid, even if you didn’t get a bill.

The interest rates charged for late payments are set annually by the City Council. Interest is charged starting from the due date and compounds daily, so the later you make the payment, the more interest you’ll owe.

Interest Rates

    July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023:

    • Property with an assessed value of $250,000 or less: 4%
    • Property with an assessed value between $250,000 and $450,000: 7%
