Do not provide personal or financial information over the phone to anyone claiming to call from the NYC Tax Commission.
The Tax Commission is the City of New York's forum for independent administrative review of real property tax assessments set by the Department of Finance.
The Tax Commission reviews and determines annual applications for correction of assessment filed by owners and other parties with sufficient legal interest in properties they claim are incorrectly assessed or improperly denied an exemption from real property tax.
The New York City Council has passed intro 1038-A-2018. As a result, effective for applications for the 2019/2020 tax year, income and expense statements filed on Form TC201 must be certified by a certified public accountant only if the assessed value is equal to or greater than $5 million and the gross income is at least $100,000.
