About

Property taxes are the lifeblood for New York City. It accounts for 44% of City revenues funding vital services like schools, libraries, safe communities, fire and child protection, and homeless services, and sanitation. It is the one tax that touches everyone’s life whether you own property, are a tenant, work in an office, shop at a local store, or pay for gas and electricity.  Despite its importance, the New York City property tax structure is broken. It is patently unfair, impossible to understand, and unnecessarily complicated.
