We send each cooperative board or managing agent an annual letter outlining each unit’s tax savings for personal exemptions and the co-op property tax abatement. The letter lists owners who we believe will continue to qualify for the co-op/condo abatement.
This year, the abatement amounts show what was received before the law was amended. We will send co-op boards or managing agents another tax benefits letter with the final abatement amounts in June for the 2012/13 tax year.
For more information read about the Cooperative and Condominium Tax Abatement.
Requirement for Co-ops to Notify Finance About Changes
Co-op boards were legally required to report changes or discrepancies in ownership to Finance before April 12, 2013 for the upcoming tax bill. Changes should have been reported using the Co-op Tax Benefit Change Form.

Forms and Reports
Note for Property Owners: You may also be eligible to receive the following personal exemptions: Basic or Enhanced School Tax Relief (STAR), Disabled Homeowner, Senior Citizen Homeowner and Veterans. The application for these exemptions must be postmarked by March 15. If you own a co-op, contact your management company to find out what exemptions you are receiving in in the current tax year (July to June). Call before March so that you will still have time to apply for benefits in the next tax year. If you own a condo, you can find your current exemptions on your Property Tax Bill.
