The Department of Finance can correct errors in your property assessment or property tax due to a clerical error or an error in your property’s description. If approved, corrections could be made retroactively up to six years before the date you apply for a correction. For more information read the Notice of Rule Making. There are specific circumstances that qualify as errors:
To apply for an error correction on your property assessment, you must submit the Administrative Review Application and supporting documentation to the address listed on the form.
Only the owner of the property or other persons who are eligible to file an application with the Tax Commission, as specified in title 21, section 3-02(b) of the Rules of the City of New York, can file an application for an administrative correction of an erroneous assessment or tax.
Clerical errors and errors in description as defined in title 19, section 53-02 of the Rules of the City of New York are eligible for correction. For all other corrections visit the Challenge Your Assessment page.
The Department of Finance will only correct eligible errors that occurred within six years of the date of submission of an Administrative Review Application.
Applications will be accepted and reviewed on an ongoing basis.
