To get started, visit the NYCePay site in January to confirm your eligibility and sign up for monthly payments!
Yes, NYCePay is the only way to register for monthly automatic withdrawals to pay your property taxes. Please note that NYCePay can only withdraw your monthly payment directly from your bank account. You cannot use a credit or debit card.
NYCePay online registration must be completed 24 hours before your payment due date for your payment to be withdrawn on time. Your auto payments will begin the following month.
Yes, if you are already registered with NYCePay, you just need to log in and change your payment option from quarterly to monthly.
We will withdraw your payment on the first business day of the month. We will send you an email reminder 10 days before withdrawing the funds. You will receive an e-receipt once the payment has been made, as well as a monthly account statement.
The monthly automatic payment amount will be one-third of the quarterly amount due or one-sixth of the amount due semi-annually.
Yes, your monthly payment amount may change in January and July. Your January and July property tax bills are prorated to account for any changes in your property tax; these changes could be the result of your annual reassessment, changes to the tax rates, or other agency charges.
Monthly auto-pay will only pay the monthly amount due; it will not cover past due charges. You can select "Amount Due Today" online to pay your past charges, if you have any.
If you are currently billed quarterly and miss one or two monthly payments, you will have until the end of the quarter to pay the entire quarterly bill before interest begins to accrue.
If you are currently billed semi-annually and miss one or more monthly payments, you will have until the end of the six-month period to pay the entire semi-annual bill before interest begins accruing.
If you do not have access to a computer, you can submit a paper copy of the Property Tax Automatic Payment (Auto-Pay) Application to the New York City Department of Finance. The Department of Finance must receive your completed application at least seven business days before your property taxes are due for those taxes to be paid automatically. If you choose to submit a paper application, you will not receive email receipts.
When you register for NYCePay, the default setting will have all taxes selected. If there are any taxes you do not wish to pay using auto-pay, you can de-select them.
Monthly payments cannot be made through a mortgage servicing company at this time.
When you register for monthly payment, the Department of Finance will automatically withdraw the payment on the first of the month. If you do not have sufficient funds to pay the monthly amount, you will be charged a $20 fee for insufficient funds.
