The Department of Finance is the central nervous system of New York City government. We collect the revenues that make every city service possible. Public education, police and fire protection, hospitals and healthcare facilities, parks and recreation centers—it all starts with DOF.
If you own a home, drive a car, rent an apartment, or start a business, you will interact with the Department of Finance at some point. We are your partner in city government, here to help you save money when you can and pay it when you must.
* As of June 2022
We administer the tax and revenue laws of the City fairly, efficiently and transparently to instill public confidence and encourage compliance while providing exceptional customer service.
