Monthly Advance Property Tax Payments

Paying your property tax is about to get a lot easier.

You can now register to pay your bill monthly, instead of quarterly, semi-annually, or annually.

Why choose monthly?

  • Easier budgeting
  • Automatic payment deduction that ensures timely payment
  • Electronic payment reminders and receipts

To get started, visit the NYCePay site to confirm your eligibility and sign up for monthly payments!

Note: When you sign up for monthly property tax bill payments, you will be paying your upcoming property taxes in advance of their due date.  Once you enroll, your payments will start on the first day of the following month. Past due taxes will not be included in these payments. You must pay past due taxes separately.

Consider this example: You are billed quarterly for your property taxes. You sign up for advance monthly payments in August. Your property taxes in the amount of $3,000 are due on October 1. Because you signed up in August, your first two payments will be deducted on September 1 and October 1. Your amount due October 1 will be evenly divided between those two payments—so, if you owe $3,000, your first two payments will be for $1,500 each. Beginning November 1, you will pay $1,000 per month, because the amount due January 1 will be evenly divided between three months.

This example is illustrated in the table below:

Payment Date Payment Amount Explanation
September 1 $1,500 You owe $3,000 on October 1. Because you registered for advance monthly payments in August, that $3,000 will be split into two payments: September 1 and October 1.
October 1 $1,500
November 1 $1,000 You owe $3,000 on January 1. This is your first full quarter making monthly payments. From now on, the amount you owe will be evenly divided among three monthly payments.
December 1 $1,000
January 1 $1,000
